Incentives

I’ve been writing a lot about incentives ever since I publicly noted that I really should write a lot more about incentives. If you doubt this, just search for “incentives” using the search box.

I had an idea for a posting today. It concerned how many so-called reformers actually want to weaken the incentives the cause our standard of living to improve. (I’m sure they don’t see it that way – they apparently have not discovered the economic way of thinking). But instead, I ran across this funny example of how incentives can be complex. It will have to do.
