Better dead than bad: Status competition among German fighter pilots during World War II

The Luftwaffe (the German air force) tried – ultimately unsuccessfully – to attain daylight mastery of the air over the British Isles. To do this we examine newly collected data on the victory claims of German fighter pilots during WWII, and found that pilots reacted strongly to official praise that was heaped on former squadron colleagues. Göring, who had also been a fighter ace in World War I, agreed and brought Galland along on the hunting trip (Galland 1993). So, in the middle of the defining conflict for the German air force, two of its best pilots had been pulled from the front... Neighbours of lottery winners often make extravagant status good purchases (Kuhn et al. 2011) and are more likely to go bankrupt (Agarwal, Mikhed, and Scholnick 2016). Card et al. (2012) and Ashraf et al. (2014) show that job satisfaction and... In a recent paper, we analyse status competition and the incentive effects of non-financial rewards jointly (Ager et al. 2017). We ask how status competition from public recognition influences performance and risk-taking. Source: Collected Links

Exponential Growth

Today I'm going to talk about something that I'm not overly proud of. And no, I'm not talking about the time, way back in high school, when I dumped laundry detergent in a big fountain in the middle of the night and then drove in circles around... Even more than living it up and relaxing at a resort, we needed a place to park the boat while we did some exploring. We've been on our big adventure for 2 years, 10 months, and 27 days now (but who's counting), and in those nearly 3 years of traveling, I do find it strange that my lifetime swear tally has more than doubled. We get some relaxation next to a pool during the day, and, after some exploring of Puerto Vallarta and Carnival into the wee hours of the night, our boat will still be there when we get back. In the last few years, we've spent the overwhelmingly vast majority of our time with the boat swinging on an anchor in remote places, not tied to a dock. We love remote, out of the way places that aren't spoiled by the masses, and that generally means we aren't hanging out in a marina at a resort with a large number of heavily intoxicated American tourists. Puerto Vallarta doesn't have a safe place for us to anchor the boat and roam, so the marina it is. We can hop on a bus, explore the town and the Carnival festivities, and not have to worry about the boat being secure while we are gone. Source: S/V Adventurer

1960 Continental Mark V
There is controversy if Continental and Lincoln were separate makes from 1958-1960. I went to my library and pulled out the book “American Cars 1946-1959″ by J.”Kelly” Flory Jr. and found Lincoln and Continental...
