Paternalist Obfuscation

by Mario Rizzo  

The “new paternalism” seems to thrive on not making important distinctions. For an analysis of a recent New York Times column by Richard Thaler, see the blog post over at Agoraphilia by Glen Whitman.

Glen and I have two articles coming out in the fall subjecting new paternalist arguments to in-depth criticisms. I’ll post these as soon as the final versions are available.
