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 Academic Advisory Panel, we use economics, science and psychology to improve policy outcomes.

In June 2018, BETA hosted the international Behavioural Exchange Conference (BX 2018) in Sydney. You can hear about people's experiences, and watch highlights from the conference.
