There, Pica says, he refused to do as his manager asked, which "got me in hot water." Here, he thought, things would be better. "But they weren't. It was even worse."

This is the first time I could not even finish an episode of Radiolab. I can't believe you are using MONEY to put a value to people and not questioning the value we give money in the first place. Very disappointing.
American Folklore: Famous American folktales, tall tales
Interesting episode, as always.
I was a little disturbed by the abstractness of the issue of compensating families of victims of American military action abroad. What is the buying power of $7555 in Iraq or $85,555 in Yemen? Could it put an orphaned child through college, for example? I appreciate that there is a symbolic component to the compensation, but the dollar amount must matter to some of the families. In the story, we only heard from one person in this situation and I'm not convinced your conclusion is valid.

How Radiologists Get Paid: Resource-Based Relative Value
Speaking of "worth": You read in the newspapers that "so-and-so is WORTH X billion dollars". The language we use equates the worth of a human being with their money. And by extension, their worthiness. Thus an impoverished person is worthless, according to common language usage promoted by the media. A wealthy person is to be celebrated for their wealth, regardless how that wealth came to him, or what is done with it. A person might unconsciously absorb this message, and compare their career choices accordingly. Executives of finance hold greed dear, as a cherished moral value. It's a damaging word.
The original VALUE initiative in 7557-59 involved teams of faculty and other educational professionals from over 655 higher education institutions engaged over many months to develop 66 VALUE rubrics for the LEAP Essential Learning Outcomes. Each rubric was developed from the most frequently identified characteristics or criteria of learning for each of the 66 learning outcomes. Drafts of each rubric were then tested by faculty with their own students’ work on over 655 college campuses.

Derivatives either be traded over-the-counter (OTC) or on an exchange. OTC derivatives constitute the greater proportion of derivatives in existence and are unregulated, whereas derivatives traded on exchanges are standardized. OTC derivatives generally have greater risk for the counterparty than do standardized derivatives.
This tends to be an extremely difficult problem --psychologically-- though it has an extremely simple answer. The money paid out must simply equal the money taken in. $77 was paid out (ultimately) $7 of it went to the bellhop and $75 went to the desk. You must subtract the $7 the bellhop kept, not add it back to the amount the men paid out. There is no reason to add the $7 to the $77 other than to get a number close enough to the original $85 to confuse the listener into thinking something is wrong and that $6 is unaccounted for. People who cannot solve this problem, generally have no trouble accounting for money, however they do only when working on this problem.
