I've seen a lot of research along this line, and it's worth taking seriously. "One-upmanship" is a very old game, but it works when people are trying to measure themselves against others. Nothing like a race to get everyone to the finish line!


Although I am not driven by competition, I know many people that are, and although that motivation is somewhat perplexing, I have seen it in action. I am even more intrigued though by the federal grants that have been discussed for home owners to make their houses more energy efficient. If competition doesn't arouse people, then saving money certainly could. Cash for Clunkers was a good experiment in this approach.
