Pretty solid presentation.

Great vid, Munz. I'm imagining an executive boardroom into which "oxytocine" (sp?) is pumped into it and the end of monopolies!

What's your take on the ultimatum game vs the big guy on the bridge game? I'd like to say that my ability to divide idealism from realism allows me to boot the poor bastard off the bridge but I suspect a real life scenario would have quite different results.

Paul Zak, one of the leaders in oxy- research, came to a presentation my professor put on. His paper is free, online.

You're welcome Steve, but that vid was courtesy of Munzenberg, a recent addition to this blog.

Dan, read the abstract. In light of Enron the aspect of "trust" carries an especial new weight. I'll have to download the full article.
