I enjoy economics, particularly behavioral economics; the study of human motivation. Interesting little insights into human behavior are common on the Freakonomics blog. Here are few items I found interesting:
- "The Salmon is Delicious" - On motivating employees.
- How Marriage Helps You Get Your Drinks Faster - A small example of the benefits of a full domestic partner.
- Swoopo.com: The Crack Cocaine of Auction Sites - It's astounding how people can continue to throw good money after bad. It reminds me of common stock market mistakes.
- A bonus Freaky article from Wired: Who Should Pay for 3-D Glasses? - Of course, we all know that the consumer will pay for it in the end.
