Behavioural Economics

We are the Behavioural Economics Team of the Australian Government, or BETA.

We are the Australian Government's central unit for behavioural economics in public policy. Working with our Research Director Professor Robert Slonim, we use economics, science and psychology to improve policy outcomes.

Rather than expecting people to redesign their lives around government, our work encourages people-centred design, which means simpler, clearer and faster public services.
