Cheating on Wall Street: Big Rewards, Little RiskCommonwealth Club - SF Club OfficeThe Cheating Culture author David Callahan addresses America's cheating epidemic. Cheating has become more common in nearly every sector of our society: business, education and sports. While there have always been those who cut corners, Callahan shows that cheating on every level from the highly publicized corporate scandals to Little League fraud has risen dramatically in the last two decades. Why all this cheating and why now? Is it a dog-eat-dog economic climate? How much has rising economic inequality and insecurity contributed to cheating? Have Americans lost faith in the social contract and the rules governing society, so that they feel more license to cheat and make up their own rules? Come hear how this epidemic of cheating threatens the level playing field so central to American democracy."
