CHIBE was pleased to welcome David Laibson, Phd as a keynote speaker on day two of our annual Behavioral Economics & Health Symposium, hosted jointly this year with the NBER Roybal Center for Behavior Change in Health and Savings. In his talk, Laibson presented attendees with a problem he calls the commitment puzzle, and a solution – private paternalism—that can help us keep the commitments we make to ourselves even in the absence of the ability to predict our own behavior.
