Experts advise governments on common traits in human behavior that need to be taken into account when designing rules for situations of decision-making by individuals - for instance in the fields of health, retirement provisions, or education. ?Choice architects? shape situations of decision-making in such a way that the individual will take the ?right? decision with a higher probability than in an alternative landscape. Based on insights from behavioral economics, tools have been developed in order to motivate the citizen towards more ?reasonable? conduct. The European Commission has been rewarding the reasonable, self-determined individual for a long time, and in the German Federal Chancellery, too, the search for behavioral economic guidelines toward efficient and cost-saving policies is under way. The ?how? of state interventions for the facilitation of a good life is being widely discussed. The ?if?, however, seems to be the more pressing issue. Are citizens' virtues the business of the state? Should the state influence and ?nudge? its citizens, or even paternalistically act as their benevolent guardian? Are there constitutional limits to ?liberal paternalism?? What about freedom of the individual, dignity, autonomy, and self-determination in a democracy?
