We had Steven Levitt on earlier this week. The Freakonomics of parenting, if you will.
Steven Levitt: When I was a kid, my parents bribed me. It was just a mainstay of my household, that if I did well in school, they’d give me $50 maybe for every day.
Ryssdal: No, get out of here! Fifty bucks?
I wasn’t the only one amazed. Here’s a bit of how you responded on our Twitter and Facebook feeds. Listen to the audio above.
Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
