The dictionary defines nudge as “to touch or push gently” and “to push into action.” In their book, Thaler and Sunstein wisely remind us how risky it is to do nothing in the face of a challenge, how essential meaningful feedback is, and how important it is to take steps to minimize error when making decisions. Let this be a constructive nudge in the direction of sound architecture in ethical decision making.
