Is there anything incentive pay cannot do?

... like motivate women to be better wives and mothers:

Forgive me if I am not exactly sympathetic. 
Fair enough. But look at it another way: the idea of financial incentives to encourage mothers to do the best for their children is a popular public policy idea. 

Bribery, basically? 
Call it what you like but the Progresa (later called Oportunidades ) programme in Mexico, which has been replicated across the world, is among the most lauded anti-poverty ideas of the past 20 years. Randomised controlled trials — the gold standard of research — have shown a strong link between cash payments to mothers and, among other benefits, increased attendance by their children at schools.

  1. I think tough to say much on this, I just prefer to keep things straight forward. As a trader, I am just following my broker OctaFX, I am getting daily updates from them, it is really useful and helps me with working, so that automatically gives me great chance of making profits while the service charge is absolutely zero, so this means it is open for everyone and that is seriously cool which is why I really love to work with them.
