The best electioneering hat…

Posted by Dave Bath on 2010-02-02


Electioneering honesty could be ensured if politicians wore funny hats, of a very special kind.

"Can a Brain Scan Predict a Broken Promise?" (Sci Am Online 2010-02-02) looks at results that seem to detect an intention to cheat when the deal is being made.

Hmmm… maybe there is application of these funny hats for use when signing contracts!

I bet this research won’t be getting much "innovation assistance" funding from politicians.
