A random selection of young adults, eighteen years old, receive notices that they will from this day forward receive $1,000.00 per month for the rest of their lives. They will not have to do anything at all for the money, and there is no way it can be cancelled. Every couple of years there will be a modest increase in line with the cost of living. The payments cannot be transferred or assigned to anyone else.
Please use your knowledge of human nature and psychology to speculate how this will affect the lives of these young people. ( The sample is large enough to include the range of economic status, race, gender, geographic location and personality types ).
Wow! I thought this would be a good topic for discussion. I'm surprised no one responded.
I think the preceived standard of living the subjects feel they need to have will rise to a minimum of slightly above whatever their income, plus the free money will be.
They'll become accustomed to the extra money and come to depend on it...
There's no such thing as free money. SCAMMER!
Are you a prince from Nigeria TomTom? Do you want my Bank Account number to funnel all those thousands of dollars I have coming to me? Free Money for who. Are you tired of bulking the elderly? Moved on to 18 year olds?
If it sounds to be too good/unrealistic.......it's a SCAM.
