Subtle Warning

Sign seen at a Starbuck's coffee house:

Unattended children will receive complimentary espresso and a free puppy.

I'll have a real economics post up in a day or two.

  • What? A post on the brilliant use of incentives is not about 'real economics' ?

    Cheers,
    BP

    PS - I am not an economist, I only pretend to understand it after reading Freakonomics. :-)

  • How callous! Offering caffeine to young children. By the way, when are you going to write some real controversial stuff again so we could have some good ol' fashion' heated debate as we had with the Indian movies post?

  • Hi Shub, BongoP, and Sarat
    Shub: I thought it was cute.

    BongoP: Sure - that's why I liked it.

    Sarat: I think the above sign was just a jest. Btw, controversial posts are always just around the corner.
