Which would you choose?

I just came across a cool little thought experiment courtesy of this article outlining the Fed's current dilemma in setting interest rates.

The experiment referred to is Newcomb's Problem - it's been around for years, it would seem, but it's new to me. I think the author above does a good job of explaining it but here's a Wikipedia link to it too.

I think I'd probably take both boxes.
