What is the most effective method of advancing a cause? It seems that you've worked for a number of different causes, i.e. anti-apartheid, women's rights, and now environmental issues. Are protests actually effective, or other methods such as lobbying and communicating directly to the corporate or government level a better use of time?

Hi Dan, what made you interested in behavioral economics, and what do you think is its future in academia? I've heard that orthodox economists often frown upon behavioral economics as a serious pursuit and tend to discount it as "unimportant". What do you make of that? Note: As a fan of yours, I obviously disagree but would like to know your thoughts!
