Met with Alex today. We went over papers - said Babcock et al was a very good paper, should check the papers it references and the papers that cite it for next week.
Also talked about two incentive schemes:
1) Give subject money (in gift cards) up front for all participants, have subject distribute gift cards & surveys to other people
2) Give 3rd person the money and "backwards distribute"
Issues of trust, Alex said we don't want to come off as manipulative. Also issues of feasibility - how are we going to give only 3rd person the money? Will it be hidden from the 1st and 2nd person?
Also talked about different forms of incentives - ex. just money, money in "gift" form (origami).
Less focus on social incentives, group incentives & peer effects
