How Do People Decide: Should I Go, Stay, Drink?

Many studies of alcohol use disorders (AUDs) use tasks that involve monetary rewards or losses to examine individual decision-making vis-à-vis alcohol and other substance use. Yet drinking typically occurs in specific social and incentive contexts that do not involve economic decision-making. This study examined decisions about attending, and drinking in, hypothetical drinking/social contexts wherein several different incentive and disincentive options were provided to the individual.

In a newly published article, Northwestern University economist Charles F. Manski and his co-author, Carnegie Mellon University criminologist Daniel S. Nagin, outline a “formal model of optimal policing” that can be used to resolve tensions between public safety and community trust -- and that also can help a public that is prone to privileging one over the other, depending on the circumstances, to keep both in mind.

June 1967 marked the beginning of the “Summer of Love” in San Francisco. The city’s zeitgeist was defined by its psychedelic art and music, and the Monterrey Pop Festival embodied that. Legendary performances by Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and The Who established them in the pantheon of rock stardom. Artist Bonnie MacLean’s poster for The Who’s Monterrey Pop appearance captured the city’s colorful spirit and created buzz for the British group’s gig at the Fillmore, a stop on their first trip to the West Coast of the United States.
