Title: Touchdown Decisions     
Description: In this Science Update, from Science NetLinks, you'll hear about how, on fourth downs, professional football coaches tend to go for field goals or punts, even when their actual odds of winning the game would be higher if they went for touchdowns. According to economist David Romer, a similar cautiousness may keep businesses from maximizing their profits. Science Updates are audio interviews with scientists and are accompanied by a set of questions as well as links to related Science NetLinks lessons and other related resources.
