The shelf life of a lie

If your company’s culture permits fudging the numbers, when did that culture start, and how has it been perpetuated?

“Mitsubishi Used Improper Fuel-Economy Tests for Some Cars Since 1991,” The Wall Street Journal, April 27, 2016, B5.  Company admits to making up fuel economy data and submitting it to the Japanese government, beginning 25 years ago.

“‘This is a problem that threatens the existence of our company,'” said the company’s president.

Is there a business case for having a culture that does not lie, cheat, or steal?
