ANDHRA PRADESH, INDIA, August 13, 2001: A clever tactic has been adopted by the boss of a chemical company in the state of Andhra Pradesh. To discourage smoking and drinking alcohol, the company pays the wife of a male employee a bonus of ten dollars a month when her husband abstains from the two habits. According to Mr. Venkatesh, "99% of his 1200 employees stick to the regime." Even though the program costs the company US$150,000 a year, the results have encouraged employees to be faithful and disciplined.
