In an article written by Anthony Gill, a Political Science Professor at the University of Washington Seattle, he focused on tackling the idea that students have that they might not do as great as their parents did career wise, and he used an experiment from one of his classes to make his point.

The experiment was about trade, and he assigned the class to start a trade with just a paperclip, The end product would be getting a $75 gift card after meeting all the requirements. The main goal of Prof. Gill was to show his students how easy it can be to make gains from trade, and that there are different ways of achieving it.
