"Individuals who are told by the coin toss to make a change are much more likely to make a change and are happier six months later than those who were told by the coin to maintain the status quo. The results of this paper suggest that people may be excessively cautious when facing life-changing choices."

Congratulations to Peter Diamond on Winning the Nobel Prize in Economics - NYTimes.com
Diamond highlighted that sentence, wrote that he thought I should include the criminal’s utility, and read no further in the paper. When I met with him, he simply said there was no point in reading any more once a bad assumption has been made. That’s not the way I think of the world, so that simple offhand comment he made twenty years ago has always stuck with me.
