Vi är lika oekonomiska som apor

Why people believe weird things about money – Los Angeles Times

Would you rather earn $50,000 a year while other people make $25,000, or would you rather earn $100,000 a year while other people get $250,000? Assume for the moment that prices of goods and services will stay the same. Surprisingly — stunningly, in fact — research shows that the majority of people select the first option; they would rather make twice as much as others even if that meant earning half as much as they could otherwise have. How irrational is that?

Många blev besvikna för ett tag sen när jämförelser mellan studenter och apor visade att aporna hade bättre minne. Los Angeles Times skriver om forskning som visar att aporna är lika irrationella som vi när det gäller ekonomi.
