The carrot or the stick as a method of motivation has been discussed for many years in management circles. In real life neither works that well without the other. Just ask Gov. Pat Quinn. He has relied on the carrot method throughout his career as governor, and it clearly hasn't worked. Republicans have refused to cooperate with him because he is a Democrat. His own party won't give him the time of day because they want to make it clear to him that he is not the boss.
I applaud the governor for vetoing the pay of lawmakers (including himself) until they come up with a solution to the pension problem. In other words, lawmakers, do your job or don't get paid. What a novel idea. It remains to be seen whether or not he can legally do that. It will be interesting to listen to the lawmakers whine.
