Should You Pay People To Be Healthy?

The New York Times has a roundtable discussion about incentives: the growing practice of paying people to be healthy, whether it's an insurer paying you to lose weight or a local government paying you to stop smoking or simply to take your pills regularly. Is this smarter than paying for hospitalization or an extension of the nanny state? Enjoy the fascinating debate here.
