I read this interesting article entitled, 'Why we are as we are' in the Economist magazine.
This article argues that much of our policy initiatives could be counter-productive because it fails to take account of residual behaviours from our evolution.
Now this poses an interesting question. Do what extent are our policies framed to look good to the general population rather than tackling the policy issue addressed?
