    Does the endless list of deceptions and scandals that have emerged over the last year signal a shift in our standards and ethics as a culture? David Callahan, author of ?The Cheating Culture: Why More Americans Are Doing Wrong To Get Ahead," (Harcourt; January 2004) talked with us about what happens when the "Me" generation decides "Greed is good."

    Do you think that people are worse than they have ever been historically? Surely there have been other periods in history when lying and cheating were just as rampant.

    My feeling is that ways of cheating to get ahead tend to come and go. We have these periods in American history where people are more focused on money and success, and there?s more license to do whatever it takes to achieve those things. I think that the late 1800s and the robber-baron era was one of those periods, and the 1920s was one of those periods, and I think the 80s and 90s will be remembered as one of those periods.
