A social scientist explains how to win over that special someone (or figure out that someone isn't so special).

Some more info about our work on inequality: 
Rich and poor, left and right, we all agree the world should be more equal. Dan Ariely and Michael Norton have spent the past decade analyzing the data. Now, they tackle what to do next.

+Thomas Parger thanks for trying to pick the nit from my post. I take it since you had nothing substantive, or as it turns out, correct to add that you agree with the rest of my thesis? Thanks for your support! 

Here's a little blurb to help clarify that I do know my history. Straight from wikipedia:
"The term "Nazi", commonly used in English, derives from the first two syllables of Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (NSDAP).[20] It parallels the German term Sozi (pronounced /zoːtsi/), an abbreviation of Sozialdemokratische Partei Deutschlands (Social Democratic Party of Germany)."

Turns out there isn't any distinction, but a direct correlation between "Nazi" and Social Democrats! 

I tried to not use the word Nazi as that is a term too often used as a flame-bait and misappropriated word in debate of ones opponents. I do note that you did understand exactly who I was referring to, so good on ya!

My main point remains that the natural outcome of pursuing "equality" is and has never been positive, but something used by any number of ideologies to tyrannize others to being "like them". Hence it is to be opposed and called out for what it is at every turn.

More on the potential of behavioral economics to help people make better financial decisions.  
Making good financial decisions becomes even more difficult when you’re poor. Here's what behavioral economists are doing to make such decisions easier.

The news of society's growing inequality makes all of us uneasy. But why? Dan Ariely reveals some new, surprising research on what we think is fair, as far as how wealth is distributed over societies ... then shows how it stacks up to the real stats.
