The first hour starts with a presentation by Alfie Kohn on teaching children to care. He explains how the strict father approach of praising or rewarding kids for being kind to others and punishing them for being selfish undermines children's ability to become nurturers of others, by encouraging them to think only of themselves. It ends with a humorous piece from The Onion about the hypnotic power money has over people.
The second hour starts with a song "Don't Let Money Change You" and some remarks of Noam Chomsky from episode 29 on the "Spirit of the Age" (Selfish love of money) from the 1850's. Next is Daniel Pink's review of research into the relationship between motivation and performance, and a section episode 371's adaption of "The Trap" on New Labour's introduction of target culture into UK. It replays "12 Shovels", from episode 183, Lyn Gerry's parralel of capitalism to the sadistic behaviour of Nazi Concentration camp guards, before concluding with a presentation by Barry Schwartz on Moral Values.
