Behavioral Ethics: Decision-making Biases and Heuristics

VIDEO LEARNING

Learn behavioural ethics from “Tipper X”, one of the most prolific informants in securities fraud history.

Why do seemingly honest, hard-working people who start out with the best intentions commit unethical, or in some cases, illegal acts? What is it that leads them astray? There is no simple reason why good employees turn bad or make poor decisions. Unethical behaviour is often the result of a combination of cultural and personal factors. No one is immune to carrying out inappropriate behaviour in the workplace.

The kind of decision making errors presented in this course come from a field of study known as behavioural ethics, which draws on psychology, cognitive science, evolutionary biology and related disciplines to determine how and why people make ethical and unethical decisions.
