"First of all, in psychology the definition of punishment is a consequence that DEcreases the frequency of a behavior; reinforcement is when the consequence INcreases the frequency of a behavior. So I question the wording of the assignment.
"Wouldn't whatever steps that are taken to deal with potential criminal psychopaths also adversely affect the potential doctors, athletes, business leaders, etc who have the same brain anomaly? We may eliminate some great…"
"Yes they do. I seem to recall Kmart having a boom, overextension, and bust some years back; too many stores, a lot of 'em closed. I keep waiting for Walmart to hit their critical mass, but they appear to be very good at projecting consumer…"
You're right that market demand doesn't create the job. The company owner's desire to fill that demand creates jobs. It wouldn't matter if 10,000 people pre-ordered Ford's cars unless Ford wanted the money those…"

"No consumers involved in the process.
If no consumers stay in your bed and breakfast, will there still be massive amounts of linen to wash, and will the laundromat guy keep those 4 new hires? Will the café need that extra…"
