Am I the only one who finds this Swiss study scary? Swiss researchers have discovered that doses of a natural hormone increases trust between humans, including trust in other people handling your money. They claim that this research could help people who are socially awkward, as well as people with autism, adjust to the world better. But it seems that the negative potential here is far greater than the possible positive gain. The scientists now expect an expansion in research on the effects of this particular hormone on humans.
I wonder who will fund that research? Banks? Stock brokers? The insurance industry?
