I'm not certain it's fair to blame Adam Smith, though it's an interesting argument from http://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/30/opinion/sunday/rethinking-work.html?action=click&pgtype=Homepage&module=opinion-c-col-right-region&region=opinion-c-col-right-region&WT.nav=opinion-c-col-right-region&_r=0 "When you take all opportunities for meaning and engagement out of the work that people do, why would they work, except for the wage? What Smith and his descendants failed to realize is that rather than exploiting a fact about human nature, they were creating a fact about human nature."
Is it human nature to hate your job? On the contrary.

Is it OK to lie? Men and women seem to hold different views on this. In responses to a particular post, I noticed that the names linked with all those who said that truth should not be compromised, especially when you can make someone feel good without resorting to lying, were all female. So I was wondering,, do women value honesty more than man do? According to study results, the answer is yes. 

From http://www.steamfeed.com/its-official-men-are-more-dishonest-than-women-a-study-by-payingtoomuch-com-revealed-yesterday/ "The study of 2,000 Brits found that six in ten Brits consider themselves to be a ‘very’ honest person, with another 38 per cent saying they usually tell the truth. However, Men are the less honest sex with the average man fibbing, or avoiding having to tell the truth three times a week – or 208 times a year. In comparison, women stretch the truth three times a week, or just 156 times a year.

Saying ‘I’m fine’ when they are actually far from it, is the most common fib Brits will tell, followed by saying they like a gift, how much something cost and how ill they really are. Other untruths include ones relating to finances, not mentioning it when you have been undercharged and complimenting food you don’t like. Telling someone they look good in an outfit which doesn’t really suit them, how much alcohol you have had to drink and being given too much change but keeping quiet about it completed the top ten.
Chichester, West Sussex (PRWEB UK) 17 July 2014 It official – men are more dishonest than women, a study revealed yesterday. Researchers found that blokes admit to stretching the truth or even outright lying, more often than women. While women avoid being honest to save someone’s feelings, men tend to fib to save them …

+Ariella Brown Yes, the Baruch HaShem reply is great for that. (and I know someone non-Jewish here who replies "Praise the Lord" in English - same principle.)

Nice idea to look at it from the mom's perspective.
Raising Dion features a young superhero boy and his equally heroic single mom.

The rich get richer with green tax credits, and do note the last line pf the abstract: " we concludethat tax credits are likely to be much less attractive on distributional groundsthan market mechanisms to reduce GGHGs." Also please note that this is reserarch done at Berkley.

From http://ei.haas.berkeley.edu/research/papers/WP262.pdf
"Since 2006, U.S. households have received more than $18 billion in federalincome tax credits for weatherizing their homes, installing solar panels, buying hybrid and electric vehicles, and other “clean energy” investments. We use tax return data to examine the socioeconomic characteristics of program recipients. We find that these tax expenditures have gone predominantly to higher-income Americans. The bottom three income quintiles have received about 10% of all credits, while the top quintile has received about 60%. The most extreme is the program aimed at electric vehicles, where we find that the top income quintile has received about 90% of all credits. By comparing to previous work on the distributional consequences of pricing greenhouse gas emissions, we concludethat tax credits are likely to be much less attractive on distributional grounds
than market mechanisms to reduce GHGs.

What could possibly go wrong? 
Targeted punishments could provide a path to international climate change cooperation, new research in game theory has found.
