The Monetarist Mistake

The Monetarist Mistake | Thinking and Learning | Scoop.it
The inadequate response to the Great Recession reflects policymakers' acceptance of Milton Friedman's analysis of the Great Depression. And yet the dominance of Friedman's monetarism has less to do with the evidence supporting it than with the fact that economics is all too often tainted by politics.

Interesting.

Bilingualism changes children's beliefs

Bilingualism changes children's beliefs | Thinking and Learning | Scoop.it
Most young children are essentialists: They believe that human and animal characteristics are innate. That kind of reasoning can lead them to think that traits like native language and clothing preference are intrinsic rather than acquired. But a new study suggests that certain bilingual kids are more likely to understand that it's what one learns, rather than what one is born with, that makes up a person's psychological attributes.
Afelio Padilla's insight:

Somehow, the size of our inner universe depends on the number of objects that can name. "Learning" is the engine of the expansion of our universe.

People prefer fair, but does the brain?

People prefer fair, but does the brain? | Thinking and Learning | Scoop.it
Whether for oneself or for others, fairness is preferred by people, but the brain network changes depending on who is actually benefiting. "In previous studies," explains the lead investigator, "we found the same tendency to reject unfair offers regardless of whether the decision involved the subjects themselves or a third party. Brain imaging, however, suggested that the brain was working differently in the two situations."

Did Culture Cause the Financial Crisis? | Yale Insights | Thinking and Learning | Scoop.it
