this is not welfare increasing

You know what's ludicrous? I've had to go through over 3 months of back and forth with the human subjects committee because I want to pay people on MTurk a few cents for accurate answers on a 5 minute survey. (If it was a simple unincentivized survey, it would be exempt from needing human subjects approval. Although I would still have to go back and forth with CPHS to prove it was exempt...)

I don't know how these people live with themselves. Bureaucracy, especially at a giant public university, is always cumbersome, but this is taking it to a new level.
