One of the lessons of this section is that incentives matter. Find an example of bad incentives in the real world and suggest ways to fix the problem. Explain why you think your approach is better.

Write-ups have a strict word limit of 600 words. You will be penalized for exceeding the
word limit. However, please note that very short submissions (typically around 450
words and less) tend to do poorly as well.
Please include the word count at the top of the document (e.g., Word Count: 576).
Please omit the standard introduction and conclusion paragraphs. Instead jump right into
the topic. Also, assume that you talk to someone who has done the readings, so no need
to define concepts and/or refer to academic literature.
Please upload the essays as Word files via iLearn (no PDFs). Do NOT enter any
assignment notes. Please use double spacing and 12-point fonts with margins of 1 inch all
around. Name the file with your full name and topic number (e.g., John Doe 2.docx).
