The Myth of 'Learning Styles'

Husmann says the most important thing, for anyone looking to learn something new, is just to really focus on the material—that’s what the most successful students from her study did. Rather than, say, plopping some flashcards in your lap ... “but I’m really watching the football game,” she said.

Better Than Cash: How Awards Can Shape Our Behavior

Are awards a more effective motivator than a cash prize? Economist Bruno Frey says yes.

You may have noticed that our modern world seems to be saturated with awards.

Many of these awards have been created in the past century. But awards have been around for millennia. The Greeks and Romans had them. Kings and queens have long given them to their bravest warriors. Societies all over the world have recognized their best citizens with prizes.

Awards are so ubiquitous that we rarely stop to ask, do they work? Do prizes inspire and motivate, or do they cause jealousy and resentment?

Economist Bruno Frey says that when awards are designed well, they can have a powerful effect on our behavior.

"When people are given an award, in general they are likely to work better, to be more engaged, to have, as we say, higher intrinsic motivation. That is, they like to work... and therefore are contributing really to the social good."

This week, we explore the upside, the downside, and the psychology of awards — and why Bruno thinks they may even be more effective than giving someone cash.

The Best Investment Decision I Have Ever Made

We live in a competence economy where success lies with those who solve problems that society needs an answer to.

It’s not easy. In fact, learning, reading two books a week, studying, getting degrees, and mastering skills are some of the hardest things in life. And that’s exactly why most people don’t do it.

Could your air-conditioning system remove carbon dioxide from the air, produce liquid fuel, and help slow climate change?

Researchers imagine a system of modular components, powered by renewable energy, that would not just extract carbon dioxide and water from the air, but also convert them into hydrogen and then use a chemical process to transform that hydrogen into liquid hydrocarbon fuels.
