1902, the French governor of Indochina faced a huge problem in the city of Hanoi. They were suffering from a massive infestation of rats and the rats could carry diseases, including the plague.

The governor implemented a plan to get rid of the rats. Thousands of people were recruited in the effort. However, the program had a serious flaw. Not only didn’t it solve the problem, but it made things worse.

Learn more about The Great Hanoi Rat Massacre of 1902, and the problem of perverse incentives, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.
