By gjones, 9 years 29 weeks ago.

I read a post on Mind Hacks today (http://www.mindhacks.com/blog/2007/09/radiolab_on_the_scie.html) that lead me to an episode (http://www.wnyc.org/shows/radiolab/episodes/2006/04/28) of WNYC RadioLab dealing with the psychology and neuroscience of morality. The show is not new, but if you haven't heard it, it's well worth downloading the MP3 for a listen during commute.

Ray Hagtvedt and I have a new paper, Marketing in Heterozygous Advantage, forthcoming in the Journal of Business Ethics, in which we examine coordination problems and perverse incentives surrounding the development of markets in a particular form of human genetic engineering in which heterozygotes are fitter than both homozygotes, a condition known as heterozygous advantage. We first present a generalized model of the condition, illuminated by the application to sickle-cell anemia.
