UR Assistant Professor of Economics Asen Kochov described Thaler's foundational work in behavioral economics as "one of the main developments in economics in the last 50 years".

Their book, titled Nudge: Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth, and Happiness became popular with some western politicians seeking ways to encourage their citizens to save and live healthily, without incurring voters' wrath for raising taxes or banning behaviour outright.
