Nine months later …

Ten months ago I wrote about a bizarre incentive scheme in Russia to boost the birth rate. Basically, have a baby on 12th June and you get the equivalent of US$11,000 for a second child. Slate accounts for the predictable but still disturbing consequence on 12th June. It wasn’t pretty. Bottom line: don’t play around with incentives.
