Cutting-edge research is having a growing influence on our understanding of more than just human incentives, but on the very structures of government, business and politics. Long at the forefront of that research, University of Chicago law professor Cass R. Sunstein, for three years President Obama’s “regulatory czar” heading the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, oversaw a far-reaching restructuring of America’s regulatory state. In this highly anticipated book, Simpler: The Future of Government, Sunstein pulls back the curtain to show what was done, how it works and why government will never be the same again.
