It tracks the historical roots, the ideas of behavioral economics for the limited rationality, will and egoism are presented in short as well as the contribution of behavioral approach to the state intervention’s ideology and practice. The libertarian paternalism idea and its role for the transformation of “state of wealth” into the gaining clearer and clearer outlines “new paternalistic state” are presented.
