In this last section of the book, we describe two dilemmas—
real-life stories of unethical behavior—and analyze them using
the traps in this book. The first dilemma, known as “The
Parable of the Sadhu,” has been used in many business schools
to challenge the thinking of “tens of thousands of students.”
The second story is Jonestown. In 1978, under
the leadership of Reverend Jim Jones, over nine
hundred people committed mass suicide.
Although these two examples are not from the business
world, their complexity provides an opportunity
to explicate the maximum number of traps.
