Would You Trust Customers to Pay Their Fair Share?

Some restaurants have been trying something new with the way they're compensated for feeding customers. Instead of presenting you with menus that could tempt you to spend more than you intended, they're asking you to come up with the price yourself.

Once you've decided on what you think is a reasonable price for what you've consumed, you pay by placing money in a closed box so nobody knows exactly what you've settled on as a fair price except for you. Obviously the owners of these pay-what-you-like joints are earning enough to stay in business, and I'm sure that some customers overpay while others take advantage and skimp on the "bill."
