No Control

How can you not love this Reason interview with Tyler Cowen when it includes questions like this:

reason (8:32:31 AM): I’ve been paying my 13-year-old son all summer to cut the grass, but he hasn’t been doing a very good job. what am I doing wrong?

Cowen (8:33:38 AM): Perhaps he feels you are trying to control him. If he accepts the payment for the grass, what next? You pay him to get better grades, or not to smoke pot? (Given that this is reason, perhaps you pay him to smoke pot!) He fears control, and so he rebels against that control by not cutting the grass.
