A Programming Note

PBSIt is not everyday that a major TV network devotes a segment to behavioral ethics, so this episode of the PBS show, Religion and Ethics Newsweekly, deserves note.  The segment, almost nine minutes long, features experts Dan Ariely and Ann Tenbrunsel.  It also profiles a MIT trained economist who, after leaving a Washington DC-based research institute to become a bagel salesman, has gained interesting insights into dishonesty (the story of the bagel man, as he is known, was first told in the New York Times by Stephen Dubner and Steven Levitt before they wrote Freakonomics).

Here is the segment. Happy viewing.
