I enjoy ethics as a subject. Professionally, integrity is central to my role. My business success is predicated on my company’s ability to execute on it’s commitments to our stakeholders. I enjoy the way this fairly dry subject is presented. In it, Dan Ariely explores the circumstances under which someone would lie and what effect deception has on society at large. What’s cool about the video is that he ties the subtle decisions individuals make to the large consequences that result.

I do recommend the other videos in the RSA Animate series. Like the TED Series, these videos are thought provoking and insightful.
