You're standing at an ATM. It can't access account information but allows unlimited withdrawals. Confession time: would you take more than your balance? David Callahan certainly thinks most of us would. Come hear David Callahan take you on a gripping tour of cheating in America offering a powerful argument for why it matters today. While there have always been those who cut corners, he 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 the cheating? Why now? Callahan pins the blame on the dog-eat-dog economic climate of the past two decades. An unfettered market and unprecedented economic inequality have corroded our values. Come see how this epidemic of cheating threatens the level playing field so central to American democracy itself.
