What do we do with those wild cards who don't behave on the basis of rational incentives?

JRV Comment: Perhaps we need to develop a model that includes all incentives and all decision making paradigms -- those with ethical frameworks which we oppose as well as those we support. I'm not sure that rationality is the only criterion. For example, a crack addict may be considered irrational from a typical perspective, but the addict's willingness to submit to sexual slavery might well be regarded as rational maximization of utility -- given the urgency the addict feels for obtaining more crack. In fact, this urgency is what we consider irrational, but it's one of the central features of addiction, isn't it?

I'm not a psychologist or sociologist, so I hope I'm not treading on toes or making gross oversimplifications here. Economists tend to thrive on simplification of models. I'm trying to identify a pseudo-rationality that might very well operate in many slavery/trafficking situations. JRV
