In an event co-sponsored by the Yale Club of Lower Fairfield County, Professor Ayres, co-founder of the commitment website, will detail how best to craft incentives to stick to your goals. The new learning of behavioral economics and psychology teaches us that crafting effective incentives is a lot more than just setting the right price. Other people matter. Mindfulness matters. And framing matters.
