Please, please don't call Ray Fair a scientist. He's a "social scientist." There's a big difference between scientists and social scientists: namely, social scientists are scientist wannabes who try to model "precisely" human behavior. Of course, their assumption of "rational" behavior flies in the face of reality--as we all know that humans don't always operate rationally.

Social scientists give scientists a bad reputation that they don't deserve.
