Libertarian Paternalism

Oh ya, a fancy name for what most parents do. (read the original paper here)

Watch the wonderful video of the lecture by Barry Schwartz. This sounded to me like a typical Indian philosophy lecture: Why less is more - the paradox of choice. Yama, the first part of the astanga yoga (-- Patanjali)
  1. Ahimsa
  2. Satya
  3. Asteya
  4. Brahmacharya
  5. Aparigraha: keeping only as much essential.
"You love doing X and get more money in Y. Go for X", he says. Happiness is not a function of achievement; it is relative to expectation.
No objections boss ; you are right.
