Cass Robert Sunstein was born September 21, 1954 and has a background as an American legal scholar in law, specifically: administrative, environmental, and constitutional law. He also has experience in behavioral economics. Along with time as an American legal scholar, he also held a position at the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs as an Administrator. For nearly three decades, Sunstein also instructed at the University of Chicago Law School. His current job is professor at the Robert Walmsley University and Harvard Law School. Such experience and expertise provides Sunstein with enough expert ability to write such a well thought out book as Simpler: The Future of Government. The book itself is loaded with interesting and insightful information not only on law, but on the inner workings of President Barack Obama's administration. As previously mentioned, Sunstein worked as the Adminstrator of OIRA. He managed and supervised the regulatory production of the numerous organizations within the executive branch. Sunstein also regulated, as he mentioned in the book, environmental protection, As he mentioned some of the things that are still within his inbox, he includes a group of Department of Energy efficiency standards that have remained unchecked since 2011. The standards are meant to minimize exposure to a main cause of sick workers annually, silica dust. He ultimately chose to ignore such important things and that is one noteworthy part of the book, is his explanation of his authority within the White House.

This somewhat "eagerly" mentioned aspect of his book is a great way to objectively see how people worked and behaved in important areas of government. It was a means of looking into how "rules" were essentially accepted or dismissed. OIRA's cost-benefit test, essentially made it so agencies could not move forward with their rules, should they fail such a test.

Consumer Protection Memo: Consumer Protection In their article in the Harvard Business Review, Robinson, Viscusi & Zeckhauser (2016) argue that consumer warning labels are not effective. They resoundingly assert that the labels do not communicate adequate information for consumers, especially in terms of benefits and risks. Essentially, the current labeling system is miserably ineffective in differentiating between significant and insignificant risks, or between "wolves" and "puppies" as the authors put it. Most
He defined the ideals that people share about how people ought to behave a "categorical imperative" - a transcendent concept of "rightness of action." No one would want to be taken advantage of the way Countrywide did, and under no circumstances did they themselves believe their actions were "right."
