Now, clearly, it's probably not practical to pay every US citizen $12 just to get them to think better of their ideological opposition. And besides, it's not clear that the effects will last much longer than the time it took to fill out a few survey questions. Still, the study shows that many people's beliefs about the opposition are quite malleable and can easily be reevaluated. If that's what's necessary to generate a greater willingness to compromise, then it might be worth figuring out if there are ways to trigger that reevaluation that don't involve payments.
