The human behavior is twisted and takes a weird course where people have embraced a norm of deceiving themselves concerning the things that they do to better their diverse avenues of resolving particular life’s issues. People’s lives are based on the assumption that they are prone to get caught and the level of punishment they can acquire from telling the truth or laying things like they are (Collaborative Cheating…, 2009). Human nature is leaned on two goals; a goal that reflects who one really in the real world and the other goal that leans towards viewing oneself and concluding they are the good after looking themselves in the mirror.
According to….., people tend to tell more lies if their counterparts are benefiting from the lying activity. As the cheating beneficiaries grow in number, the level of cheating also increases. Cheaters justify their lying activities on the fact that the lies they convey will benefit more people that truth would have. If the number of beneficiaries increases, it thus creates less guilt. Generally, people possess good morals that the majority would wish to emulate, but not many keep asking themselves if they are morally upright (Collaborative Cheating…, 2009). If a person is barely concerned about talking to their inner being if all the kind of things they engage in are morally right, then one may find himself doing little things that may not seem to engage their moral compass. Cheating among people can decrease if the lies beneficiaries can get the lying information directly from liars and choose to do what is morally right in society. The cheating mode can also be significantly reduced if people get closer to one another, understand each other and think more critically of the information they get (Collaborative Cheating…, 2009). Weighing the information one gets would aid people in detecting where truth is and align by it.
The world’s current financial crises are majorly blamed on the greed outbreak brought about by the United States and other nations that brought capitalism into existence. The Undemanding Ethics (2009) depicts that unlike in traditional communism days, the markets of capitalism are channeled and controlled by mutual behavior that embraces individual interests. After the installation of capitalism, private and public institutions now have the responsibility of monitoring the economic behavior that sometimes fails and leads to huge losses on the other affiliated parties. Additionally, the financial crises are chiefly a consequence of the public strategies that encourage homeownership that has long been encouraged by politicians of the dual parties collectively (The Undemanding Ethics…, (2009). The contemporary alterations in the individual mortgage market, institutions and market policies have resulted in massive unwise behaviors that have diminutive evidence of meaningful unethical execution of other people.
Understanding the mode of capitalism calls for an understanding of diverse human and economic interaction forms such as the care, exchange and the threat attitude. The caring attitude entails that a person should always engage in things that promote what other people need or want since him/she is cautious for other humans (The Undemanding Ethics…, (2009). The exchange attitude focuses on bringing to the market what people want in their lives. Lastly, the threat attitude depicts that people might do or markets what is not needed in the market and thereby threatening personal needs and wants. For an economy to be stable, it must embrace all three (caring, exchange and threat) relations. Therefore, capitalism ethics is undemanding since it primarily operates on supply abundance that is majorly anchored on self-interests. Creating a capitalist economy is thus expected to align itself with limited care, although not dependent on care attitude that is more conscious of intimate human interaction forms that minimize the necessity to depend on awesome mechanisms of threat (The Undemanding Ethics…, (2009). Therefore, it would be imperative to embrace a better understanding of the situations that brought about the financial crisis, which will, in the long run, result in the courage to engage in intelligence that promotes truth and honesty.

COVID 19 has made working from home strategy more real and thereby making organizations go from customer and firm digitizing relationship to employee-employer relationship digitization. Employees are being taught to have a knowledge acquiring mindset that prepares them abruptly and constant environmental changes (Kirby, 2020). The pandemic is constantly sending shockwaves through economies and industries that are perhaps majorly impacting human uncertainty and fear. The pandemic is bringing and cultivating trust and transparency among the workers and their employers. The social distancing mindset is fashioning a model of bringing people together in disguise. For instance, employers and employees are consistently in touch since they are working remotely. By the virtual of working online, people are learning on the ways of how to work differently and with less supervision. The corona pandemic has brought about a learning strategy where workers and employers are left to decide what is right and what is not since everyone is afraid of acting in a manner that may deem them weirdly oriented (Kirby, 2020). The current corona pandemic has strengthened the relationship between the workers and their supervisors making everyone to cultivate on teamwork since those that fail to perform their duties rightfully will be left behind and as a result, one will face the peril of layoff, financial distress or might lead to an organization closure (Kirby, 2020). Therefore, the corona pandemic cultivates an employee-employer relationship founded on trust, openness, and transparency. The companies that embrace the work from home initiatives are in a better position of retaining the most talented and competitive human resource.
