Lie, Cheat, and Steal Your Way to Success!

What Would the World Be Like Without Ethics?

Friday, September 12, 2008 05:30 PM to 07:00 PM


The first event of the 2008-2009 Carnegie New Leaders season will feature professional ethicist Bruce Weinstein discussing "Lie, Cheat, and Steal Your Way to Success! What Would the World Be Like Without Ethics?"

Bruce Weinstein, Ph.D., is the professional ethicist known as The Ethics Guy®. His interactive talks to businesses, schools, the military, and a wide range of nonprofit organizations across the country show how living an ethical life makes us happier, healthier, and more prosperous—but that the reason to do the right thing is simply because it's the right thing to do. His clients include the National Football League, The National Guard (South Carolina Division), HDI, Vistakon/Johnson & Johnson, Pri-Med, the National Grocers Association, the Eastern Michigan University College of Business, and 300 other leading groups.

He writes the column, "Ask the Ethics Guy," for, which is also distributed internationally by the McClatchy-Tribune News Service (formerly Knight Ridder). He appears every Friday on CNN's "American Morning" to discuss the presidential campaign and other issues in the news from an ethical perspective. He has also appeared on numerous other television and radio shows.

Dr. Weinstein is the author or editor of five books on ethics, and his writings, quotes, and features have appeared in numerous national periodicals and major media websites. His latest book is Life Principles: Feeling Good by Doing Good (Emmis Books).

He received a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy from Swarthmore College, a Ph.D. in Philosophy and Bioethics from Georgetown University, a certificate in Film Production from New York University, and a National Fellowship from the W. K. Kellogg Foundation in Battle Creek, Michigan.

In 2009, Roaring Brook Press will publish his next book, Is It Still Cheating If I Don't Get Caught? Practical Answers to Life's Sticky Questions from The Ethics Guy®, which will focus on ethical issues for teens.
