Zerohedge, Mapping The (Dis)Honesty Of The World, here. Reader’s DIgest has the scoop.
Reader’s Digest wanted to know how honest world cities are, so it “lost” 192 wallets in 16 cities – that’s 12 wallets in each city – to see how many would be returned. Each wallet contained $50 equivalent of local currency, as well as a name, phone number, family photo, coupons, and business cards. The results, as IBTimes’ Lisa Mahapatra illustrates are perhaps surprising. The US ranked well (with 8/12 wallets returned) but the troubled regions of Europe (Spain and Portugal) came a dismal last with only 2 and 1 wallets returned respectively.
