I had a dream last night where I was given an interesting idea for an experiment. The idea was given without the context of a situation–I didn’t see the experiment taking place, and I don’t even remember being in any particular situation. But I was asleep, and this idea came to me.
It was called the poverty experiment. In this episode, I discuss the poverty experiment, and what kinds of outcomes such an experiment might have. What do you think? What would happen if we did such an experiment?
