Why Good People Lie

The Wright Show

– Behavioural economist Dan Ariely, author of the new book “The Honest Truth About Dishonesty,” talks with Robert Wright about why most people lie and how reality is not black and white.

He discusses the death penalty and other consequences that don’t deter people, cost benefit analyses, rationalizing, and describes some psychological experiments as well as real world examples.

Ariely does the interview from a fun summer hammock.
