I need to find people to give the money to if I fail, so I
thought I’d ask the Economics blogging community for help.
If you agree then if I fail at my goal, I will pay Marginal Revolution, or the charity
of your choice, $100.
Here is my response to Mike:
Hmmmm….I am not sure whether to be pleased at the prospect of a free
$100 or upset that you consider $100 in our hands to be such good
motivation! Speaking personally, however, I understand the difficulty
of losing weight thus I want you to know that if we receive the $100 we will not send it to India, we will not give the money to cancer research, we will not give the money to any cute
animals instead we will use your money to squash the poor, to fight
against universal health care, and to gas up our Hummer. Moreover, we
will do this while drinking fine wine, smoking cigars, eating foie gras
and laughing uproariously.
There that ought to help.
If there are other left-wingers out there who would like more motivation to accomplish their life goals then do know that Tyler and I are here to help.
