People think they are more ethical than they are

Research at Harvard Business School has found that people predict that they will behave more ethically than they so, and that they look back on past behavior and think of it as more ethical than it was.

This is an important lesson for companies which want to make sure that they behave ethically. The detailed rules of behavior have to be laid out, not just a pious intent.
