ABSTRACT

The first of its kind Global Experiment on Honesty conducted by
Researchers from US and Switzerland at a global scale across 355 cities in
40 countries revealed that altruism and desire not to be perceived as a
Thief are more powerful than the lure of easy money. This is just opposite
to conventional thinking about human response to Temptation and
Financial Incentives on its head. This is corroborated by the findings of
this experiment.
