Cost vs. Benefit
  • Before making a decision, weigh the cost vs.
  • In the story, Country Mouse thinks about what he
    likes (the benefits), and then he thinks about
    what he does not like (the costs), and then he
    makes a decision to stay or go home.

Choice vs. Chance
  • Every day we make choices based on the chance
    that certain events might occur.
  • We estimate the probability for the event to
  • Then we examine the consequence of the event and
    make a decision.

People and the Effects of Their Decisions
  • Patrick Daniel "Pat" Tillman- (November 6, 1976 
    April 22, 2004) was an American football player
    who left his professional career and enlisted in
    the United States Army in June 2002 in the
    aftermath of the September 11 attacks.
  • Tillman joined the Army Rangers and served
    several tours in combat before he died in the
    mountains of Afghanistan. At first, the Army
    reported that Tillman had been killed by enemy
    fire. Controversy ensued when a month later, on
    May 28, 2004, the Pentagon notified the Tillman
    family that he had died as a result of a friendly
    fire incident

  • James Francis "Jim" Thorpe (Sac and Fox (Sauk)
    Wa-Tho-Huk, translated as "Bright Path" May 28,
    1888 March 28, 1953)
  • Jim was an American athlete of Native American
    and European ancestry. Considered one of the most
    versatile athletes of modern sports, he won
    Olympic gold medals for the 1912 pentathlon and
    decathlon, played American football (collegiate
    and professional), and also played professional
    baseball and basketball.
  • He lost his Olympic titles after it was found he
    was paid for playing two seasons of
    semi-professional baseball before competing in
    the Olympics, thus violating the amateurism rules
    that were then in place. In 1983, 30 years after
    his death, the International Olympic Committee
    (IOC) restored his Olympic medals.

Rosa Parks-On December 1, 1955, in Montgomery,
Alabama, Parks refused to obey bus driver James
F. Blake's order that she give up her seat in the
colored section to a white passenger, after the
white section was filled. Parks was not the first
person to resist bus segregation. Others had
taken similar steps, including Irene Morgan in
1946, Sarah Louise Keys in 1955, and the members
of the Browder v. Gayle lawsuit (Claudette
Colvin, Aurelia Browder, Susie McDonald, and Mary
Louise Smith) who were arrested in Montgomery
months before Parks. NAACP organizers believed
that Parks was the best candidate for seeing
through a court challenge after her arrest for
civil disobedience in violating Alabama
segregation laws, although eventually her case
became bogged down in the state courts while the
Browder v. Gayle case succeeded.23Parks' act
of defiance and the Montgomery Bus Boycott became
important symbols of the modern Civil Rights
Movement. She became an international icon of
resistance to racial segregation. She organized
and collaborated with civil rights leaders,
including Edgar Nixon, president of the local
chapter of the NAACP and Martin Luther King,
Jr., a new minister in town who gained national
prominence in the civil rights movement.
Queen Isabella of Spain-
  • 22 April 1451 26 November 1504
  • She and her husband, Ferdinand II of Aragon,
    brought stability to the kingdoms that became the
    basis for the political unification of Spain
    under their grandson, Holy Roman Emperor Charles
    V. After a struggle to claim her right to the
    throne, she reorganized the governmental system,
    brought the crime rate to the lowest it had been
    in years, and unburdened the kingdom of the
    enormous debt her brother had left behind. Her
    reforms and those she made with her husband had
    an influence that extended well beyond the
    borders of their united kingdoms. Isabella and
    Ferdinand are known for completing the
    Reconquista, ordering conversion or exile of
    their Muslim and Jewish subjects in the Spanish
    Inquisition, and for supporting and financing
    Christopher Columbus's 1492 voyage that led to
    the opening of the New World. In most instances,
    she was more influential than her husband.
