Well, they could be lying to us, but a LA-based ethics insitute has released a survey of almost 30,000 students at randomly selected high schools. The result? 35% of boys and 26% of girls admit stealing from a store within the past year. 20% stole from a friend and 23% stole from a parent or other relative.

 

The statistics, from the Josephson Institute, show that 64% of the students admit to cheating on a test. That, of course, begs the question of how many of them lied to the survey. But the bottom line: Kids steal the darndest things! The concept of trust is going to undergo a huge redefinition as our cute youngsters enter the business world.

Anyone surprised? Certainly not after reading the descriptions of dicks in escort adds or the reviews on here. As an example look at the two reviews today on Sean #2. One shows 8 to 9 inches and the other shows 6 to 7 inches. One of them is having accuracy problems.

Lucky I think you've missed the core problem of our current financial morass: the credit markets have withered because banks don't trust each other nor should they. Accounting's "mark to market" ethos (whether or not there's an appropriate market to mark to!) has made financial statements so subjective that they are nearly valueless to users and users know that issuers are like themselves and that issuers will use that "subjectiveness" to their own best advantage - reality be damned. And the ratings of the the "rating agencies" have been tainted for a decade or more. So who do they trust? No one.

 

How could current students do any worse (or better depending on your point of view).
