Ariely’s Honest Truth took a close look at our human frailty when it comes to ethics and commitments. Based on Ariely’s book, on the one hand, one might argue that we need structure and constraints to protect ourselves and our society from our own imperfections, and yet, on the other hand, it may be argued that those charged with regulating and controlling the rest of us are just as imperfect and thus that we should be skeptical of centralized regulatory powers.

This is a complex issue and reasonable people may come up with very different answers to this question. That said, your assignment to write a short essay (minimum 400 words) on the extent to which you believe that Ariely’s arguments are relevant for government regulation of business.
Originality reminder: this assignment will be checked for originality using turnitin.com. Please remember to cite all your sources and make sure that you use proper quotation marks for any verbatim quotes
