Poor New Yorkers raked in $3k for good behavior

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg implemented a controversial program last year that offered cash rewards to low-income residents who practiced good behavior like visiting the doctor, attending parent-teacher conferences, and getting health insurance.

2,400 families participated and earned an average of $3,000 in what are known as "conditional cash transfers" -- a significant chunk of change given that a family of three had to have annual earnings of less than $22,301 to participate. The experiment program was privately-funded, and Mr. Bloomberg says it's too early to say whether it's a success.
