Effective decision-making - the Ugly

In what can only be described as something out of a movie script, reports are now circulating that the father of the female child actor from 'Slumdog Millionaire" is trying to sell his daughter to the highest bidder. Can this actually be true? Rep0rts say yes, that the father is willing to sell his daughter because he has her best interests at heart. I guess the proposed $400,000 he might stand to make wouldn't hurt either.

This is a decision that is wrong on so many levels that there are not enough pages to describe it. However, the decision-making process being used shows how a faulty process can lead to a poor decision. By putting emphasis on money and his wants, the father is not considering what his daughter may want. Maybe she would rather stay with her family in India as opposed to moving in with strangers in the Middle East. Seems like a logical response, wouldn't you agree? This is only one of the many daily examples we see of poor decision-making and how the impact and consequences is not always taken into account. Does anyone else feel bad for the little girl?
