In Not Just For the Money Professor Frey challenges traditional economic theory and argues that people do not act in expectation of monetary gain alone, nor do they work solely because they are paid. Furthermore the author claims that higher monetary compensation as well as regulations crowd-out motivation in important circumstances.

The final part discusses the substantial consequences for policy making and economic theory.
