Many documentaries and podcasts can serve as excellent case studies for discussion that can be added to a longer version of this Module. Since case studies are often anecdotal they are not always helpful within a behavioural science context. However, the following are excellent companions to this Module:
- Ponzi Supernova . Episode from Radiolab, a programme from National Public Radio. This podcast includes interviews with Bernie Madoff, and serves as an excellent case study in ethical awareness.
- Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room. This video documentary on Enron is an excellent case study in how to design an unethical organization. This film is also discussed in Module 4: Infiltration of Organized Crime in Business and Government of the University Module Series on Organized Crime.
- Inside Job. This is an excellent documentary on the financial crisis of 2008-2009. It can be used to discuss conflicts of interest, and problems with financial incentives that encourage unethical action. It currently needs to be purchased in order to be viewed.
