Here is a place where the incentive system is completely screwed up: The Weather!
The so-called meteorologist or weatherman on the local news can get the weather wrong, two or three days in a row...and they are never held accountable.
Maybe we need better incentives such as: you get the weather wrong twice in a week, then you are denied some pay.
Make it a performance-based system. Is there really a way to cheat when it comes to predicting the weather?
Not unless you can pull a "Back to the Future Part II," when Marty McFly buys the Sports Almanac in the future to take back to 1985.
Addendum: I was angry and frustrated this day because I wanted to go to the Zoo. I am sorry to all weatherman for any inconvenience from my crusade against you.
