What's the word for when you say:
"If you don't do X, we take away Y."

Like in those "I will kill James Bond unless you give me 100 million yen" kinda things.

edit:
negative reinfrocement is when you apply a negative stimulus to a person, and remove the stimulus when the person have the desired behaviour.

positive reinforcement is when you apply a positive stimulus each time the person has the desired behaviour.

the term you are probably looking for is positive punishment

I suppose it depends on the situation. In your first post you make it seem half like a parental dominance technique while at the same time as full blown blackmail.
