“Sludges and Dark Nudges in Big Alcohol’s CSR Campaigns”

For this seventh episode, we are talking with Nason Maani and May van Schalkwyk. They are two of the authors of a highly important and innovative research article that we have discussed on the podcast previously. Their paper is called “Dark Nudges and Sludge in Big Alcohol: Behavioral Economics, Cognitive Biases, and Alcohol Industry Corporate Social Responsibility”.
This week we highlight two alcohol issues that we think deserve special attention. In policy and science news, we talk about the latest Global Burden of Disease study, its key findings and what they mean for alcohol policy-making. And in the Big Alcohol Watch we discuss evidence from Ireland about the child rights harm due to alcohol and the delay in implementing the Public Health Alcohol Act.
