Incentives


Assume:

  1. 1000 people on the North side of an East-West freeway.
  2. Someone on the South side of that same freeway with money to give away to anyone who crosses the freeway.
  3. An amount of traffic that would allow a pedestrian the chance of crossing with a reasonable danger level of being struck by a car.

Do we all agree that more people will cross the freeway as the amount of money on the other side increases?

    some will cross for any amount of money and others will never cross no matter how much money. So at some point the number will level off, I would think

      I agree. But generally, the more money the more people will cross.

      Or try.
