"Under what circumstances would you lie, or cheat, and what effect does your deception have on society at large? Dan Ariely, one of the world's leading voices on human motivation and behaviour is the latest big thinker to get the RSA Animate treatment.
The relationship between preferences and actions. (a) the view from neo-classical economics, in which a calculation of hedonic utility underlies behavior. In this view, preferences cause actions and actions reveal preferences.
