The link between poor decisions about money and ethics

Project Director Peter Loge writes in Campaigns and Elections that the little ethical decisions to which don’t pay attention are the ones that matter most.

“In his 1936 essay "The Crack Up," F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote that the big blows that you notice are not the ones that do the real damage. The real damage is done by the small blows that you don’t notice until it’s too late. The same is true of ethics. The big and obvious decisions are easy to spot and respond to. The little decisions that you don’t notice in the moment have a way of adding up doing damage that may be irreparable.”
