Does the chance of getting caught affect how likely we are to cheat? How do companies pave the way for dishonesty? The New York Times best-selling author of Predictably Irrational and The Upside of Irrationality returns to challenge our preconceptions about dishonesty and urge us to take an honest look at ourselves. Ariely contends that we all cheat. From Washington to Wall Street, the classroom to the workplace, unethical behavior is everywhere. And Ariely asserts that it's actually the irrational forces that we don't take into account that often determine whether we behave ethically or not. Join Ariely as he presents his innovative research to the question of dishonesty.
