Professor Omri Ben-Shahar appeared on WTTW's Chicago Tonight on July 22, 2014, to discuss his new book, More Than You Want to Know: The Failure of Mandated Disclosure.

From the Chicago Tonight website: "Making informed decisions is crucial, whether a person decides to buy a new phone, undergo surgery or skydive. The law requires organizations and companies to release disclosures, but very few people spend even a minute reading those extensive documents. Omri Ben-Shahar, co-author of More Than You Want to Know: The Failure of Mandated Disclosure, is a skeptic of most required disclosures, and he presents the case for their limitations. He joins us to talk about the difficulty in informing consumers about complex decisions."
