We present the first meta-analysis on collaborative dishonesty –where groups can lie to increase the group’s profits— covering 87,687 decisions made by 11,166 people engaging in 21 different experimental tasks. Results reveal that various situational and personal factors shape collaborative dishonesty including, for example, that group members affect each other’s behavior over time. We propose that prosocial and image concerns drive collaborative dishonesty.

About the Speaker

Shaul Shalvi is a professor of Behavioural Ethics at the Center for Research in Experimental Economics and political Decision making (CREED ), Amsterdam School of Economics. He serve as an Associate Editor at Judgment and Decision Making. Behavioural ethics is the empirical study of ethical questions.  We study topics like fairness, equality, values and norms. That is, how people behave when their decisions and actions impact others. At the moment, our lab is focused on understanding the psychological factors influencing people's behaviour when using sharing economy platforms. We are especially interested to figure out how responsible sharing can be encouraged and maintained. For additional information:
