In the last few weeks we've witnessed some high-profile duplicity: From Bernie Madoff's masterminding of a $65 billion swindle or the tax lapses of the Obama cabinet nominees (Daschle, we're looking at you).

Duke Professor of Behavioral Economics at Duke University and author of Predictably Irrational.
