      Chris W. Surprenant is Professor of Philosophy at the University of New Orleans, where he directs the University Honors Program and is the founding director of the Urban Entrepreneurship and Policy Institute. He is the author of Kant and the Cultivation of Virtue (), and editor or co-editor of The Value and Limits of Academic Speech (), Rethinking Punishment in the Era of Mass.   Financial incentives by themselves will not make employees work harder, smarter or faster.
