Failure can be an important and inspiring ingredient of our life – if we are able to learn from it and use the experience to improve ourselves. But not always do we learn from failing.

Het tweede was afkomstig van het ‘sustainable finance lab’, waar onder anderen de heer Wijffels aan bijdraagt, en ging onder meer over de bonussen bij de banken. Lees verder

Straffen en belonen juist wanneer dat veel kost

door Laetitia Mulder

Onderzoek

Soms kunnen collectieve doelen alleen worden bereikt als mensen hun eigenbelang opzij zetten. Zo hebben we bijvoorbeeld alleen een functionerende infrastructuur als mensen belasting betalen, en kan er alleen goed vergaderd worden als iedereen aanwezi
