Nick Clegg meets Richard Thaler: The UK’s former deputy PM and the Nobel prize winner discuss the EU, business and Trump

Richard Thaler was awarded the Nobel prize for economics in October, for work that has “built a bridge between the economic and psychological analyses of individual decision-making”. … Nick Clegg, meanwhile, is adapting to life outside Westminster. He was leader of the Liberal Democrats between 2007 and 2015, deputy prime minister in David Cameron’s coalition government and MP for Sheffield Hallam for 12 years, before losing his seat to Labour in the last election. …

Clegg has long been a fan of Thaler’s work. … The two men also share a grim fascination with the psychology behind the upheavals of Brexit and the election of Donald Trump, and the abiding consequences of the 2008 financial crisis. CONT.
