August 3, 2012, 9:16 AM
White House regulatory chief Cass Sunstein is leaving his post this month to return to Harvard Law School, officials said Friday.
Mr. Sunstein has long been an advocate of behavorial economics in setting policy, the notion that people will respond to incentives, and has argued for restraint in government regulations. As such, he was met with skepticism and opposition by some liberals when he was chosen at the start of the Obama administration.
