Incentivisation is the practise of building incentives into an arragement or system in order to motivate the actors within it.

Without incentivisation, systems are often counter-productive. For example, taxing people at 98% on all investment income gives them an incentive not to invest. This has the effects that:

  • People stop investing
  • The taxes stop being paid (due to people no longer investing)
  • The economy behaves poorly (due to lack of investment)

The above is a simple example of negative incentivisation.
