PROFESSOR COLIN MAYER, PIGGY BANK

On saving money and the surprising longevity of the Piggy Bank. 

“Examples such as this are very valuable, considerably more so than the coins that they contained. The extraction of money was a very deliberate decision. There was a degree of commitment and irreversibility associated with dropping the coin in the slot”
