I looked back to see a richshaw pull up from behind and stop by my side. It was a familiar face. I knew it right away. Especially the toothless grin.

Some of us resort to the unfortunate conclusion that cold selfish behaviour is “natural” for human beings in economic situations. This is false. The real reason for moral ennui at the workplace is buried in mainstream economic theory.
