[Xmca-l] Re: Fwd: Poverty and Data



The "go getter" doctors in the United States also see more patients.  But mortality rates are much higher.  Also very noticeable, there are no measurements of well-being.  As for the saving, Bandura would have predicted this from a psychological perspective almost forty years ago, suggesting that those who save and think they are going to get the money back get more self-reinforcement for saving.  The question is will they do it again once they find out it's a con (their parents make them spend it on school supplies, or is it actually detrimental to the behavior in savings.  There are liars, there are damned liars, and there are economists.
