NYC residents, an investigation has found, are the only people on earth who are not for sale. Time Out went around offering cash to people on the street to sell their stuff on the spot—t-shirts, do-rags, pins, their own time. The reporter managed to get a do-rag, some pins, and an hour of quality time with some people (for $150-$50), but concluded that 72% of all citizens are "not for sale." Further, "Both athletes and hipsters refused my offer of $100 for their shiny tights," which proves only that athletes and hipsters are not good economists. We're not so sure we trust these results. The offer of a Murray Hill condo, several new suits, a Blackberry, and $140,000 a year seems to convince plenty of New Yorkers to become corporate lawyers. [TONY]
