Money, Money, Money! It Changes Everything…

Money is not the root of all evil, but it changes us in ways that are not always good.  So, we should be careful about money if we wish to lead ethical lives.

A number of recent studies have primed one group of subjects to think about money (by having them solve word puzzles that involve money-related terms, or by having them sit next to a computer with a screensaver showing dollar bills floating around, or even by leaving some Monopoly money nearby).  Then, the scientists compared the decision making of these subjects with subjects who were not primed to think about money.

    • Don't know about this. You might want to contact Ms. Gurmeet Rai, active in Sikh conservation issues. I think this is her contact info: https://in.linkedin.com/in/gurmeet-sangha-rai-1a793b30 Also see http://www.sikhfoundation.org/renconv.html  
    • Yes, that was the entire point. EU rules forbid any EU members from negotiating trade deals. The point of leaving the EU was so the UK can negotiate its own trade deals with the US, the British Commonwealth, and the world.  If the EU had given David Cameron a bit of leeway, such as restrictions on immigration and allowance for trade deals, the UK would likely never have voted to leave the EU. Now they will be in  a world of hurt with a huge hole in their budget without the UK supporting them. They will either have to increase member contributions (for net donor members) or scrap subsidies (for net recipient members), both of which will increase infighting in the EU.
    • Great practical advice. We need to be prepared for when it kicks off.

    • Yeah. Those corporations transcend any border at this point and have more control than government period. If this wasn't all just a play of lights it would be terrifying.
