consider me skeptical, but I'm sure some news outlet will latch onto this.

Obviously, they didn't have any compliance professionals in the study

Pulling people out of the ditc...
Quote:
The first study involved 128 employees all levels of a large international bank -- the researchers were sworn to secrecy about which one -- and 80 staff from a range of other banks


sounds like a reporter needs to learn to write...

Quote:
The results showed the control group reported 51.6 percent winning tosses and the treatment group -- whose banking identity had been emphasized to them -- reported 58.2 percent as wins, giving a misrepresentation rate of 16 percent. The proportion of subjects cheating was 26 percent


how does one "emphasize" the test person is a banker? Does someone stand there and say "remember, Jimmy, you're a banker!!!" before each coin toss?

and what size oven is required to cook bankers?

:sigh: that's supposed to be "crooked", although with the general lack of excersize amoung bankers I know the cooked banker would be quite tender

Who cares? We all know bankers are juicier when they're fried instead of roasted. wink

don't be ridiculous, you don't cook the whole thing at once. If you did it would have to be on a spit over an open flame.

Yeah! All you bankers are crooked (cooked) and shady! And you're probably well done too, thus nasty. smirk
