Should Kids Be Bribed to Do Well in School? | What the FAQ | Scoop.it
What motivates kids to work hard in school?
Renuka Prasad Sahukara's insight:

More cities allow single drivers to avoid traffic by paying to use the car-pool lane. The movement is picking up speed, but critics say it's unfair to let drivers with deeper pockets buy special treatment on publicly funded roads.

[VIDEO] The Vampire Economist and the Moral Molecule

In his new book, The Moral Molecule: The Source of Love and Prosperity, neuroeconomist Paul J. Zak discusses his research on oxytocin, what he calls the "moral molecule." For the past 10 years, Zak has been conducting the same kind of trust games that are common in experimental economics, but with a twist. Before and after the trust games, Zak has been taking blood samples with the goal of gaining a better understanding of how and why people trust others.
