Ryan Lochte is currently in a little hot water with the Brazilian police. He is accused of fabricating a robbery story. He has recently apologized for the fib he told.
If you are interested in the economics behind lying, there is a great documentary on Netflix called “(Dis) Honesty: The Truth about Lies.” The documentary does a great job of making Dan Ariely’s research on behavioral economics accessible to the general public. The documentary highlights several business and individual examples of lying, making it a good resource for Managment classes too.
Is there a documentary that you recommend?
