Monkeys, money and emotion

November 7, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

monkey at Chaing Mai ZooSaw this piece about Monkey Economics on Kruse Kronicle. What caught my interest is when they said that they obtained “economic outcomes not through sitting down and negotiation, but through feeling and emotion.” Sounds a little like what we learned about in our counseling and member care seminar last week.

Their conclusion on the broadcast, “It’s the law of supply and demand played out along the neurohormonal pathways that deal with emotion in the monkey brain.”

Here is a link to the transcript and the the radio broadcast which is entertaining in itself.
