The concept of nudging has changed the way human decision making is perceived. Defined as “… any aspect of the choice architecture that alters people’s behaviour in a predictable way without forbidding any options or significantly changing their economic incentives”, nudging is a measure of behavioural economics, intending to rationalise human decision making.
