Faculty Book Talk: Cass Sunstein’s Valuing Life: Humanizing the Regulatory State, Friday, October 10 at noon
The Harvard Law School Library staff invites you to attend a book talk and panel discussion in celebration of Professor Cass R. Sunstein’s recently published book, Valuing Life: Humanizing the Regulatory State.
Sunstein is the Robert Walmsley University Professor at Harvard University, and is the author of several books, including, Simpler: The Future of Government (2013), with coauthor Richard H. Thaler, Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness (2008), and Why Nudge?: The Politics of Libertarian Paternalism (2014).
“The White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) is the United States’s regulatory overseer. In Valuing Life, Cass R. Sunstein draws on his firsthand experience as the Administrator of OIRA from 2009 to 2012 to argue that we can humanize regulation—and save lives in the process.
