Ariely challenges our preconceptions about dishonesty-- we all cheat, whether it's copying a paper in the classroom, or white lies on our expense accounts. He explores how unethical behavior works in the personal, professional, and political worlds, and how it affects all of use, even as we think of ourselves as having high moral standards.

From the chapter "Why Wearing Fakes Makes Us Cheat More":

"Did the presumed fakeness of the product make the women cheat more than they naturally would? Or did the genuine Chloe label make them behave mroe honestly than they would otherwise? In other words, which was more powerful: the negative self-signaling in the fake condition or the positive self-signaling in the authentic condition?"
