Article of the Week
How Some People Resist the Sway of a Bribe
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University conducted a study to understand how the time when an individual receives a bribe affects their decision making. The study indicates that when incentives depend on choices, people accept and reward bribes. On the other hand, when bribes are not contingent on delivering a certain outcome, they don’t distort judgment nearly as much.
