Dishonesty in Behavioral Economics provides a rigorous and comprehensive overview of dishonesty, presenting state-of-the-art research that adopts a behavioral economics perspective. Throughout the volume, contributors emphasize the effects of psychological, social and cognitive factors on the decision-making process. In contrast to related titles, this book emphasizes the importance of empirical research methodologies. The book's contributors demonstrate how various methods applied to similar research questions can lead to different results. This characteristic is important because it is difficult to obtain reliable measures of dishonesty.

- Covers both state-of-the-art methods and data collection mechanisms (e.g., laboratory experiments, field experiments, online surveys)
- Discusses novel interdisciplinary research findings and proposes new avenues of research
Graduate and postgraduate students in economics and across social science attending either a course on experimental methods, with a focus on dishonest behaviors, or a course in ethical behaviors. Policy-makers interested in designing interventions aimed at minimizing dishonest behavior in society
