FYS Cheaters Never Win, or Do They?: Start Here

Books in the SLC



What do fishing, chess, ballet, bodybuilding, and softball have in

common? Cheaters win and sometimes that’s okay. Cheating is commonplace in nearly

every competitive venue from Little League to the Olympics. Sometimes it is ignored and

considered ethically ambiguous, while other times it's considered morally reprehensible and punished

harshly. We will explore cheating from the biological, psychological, economic, and cultural perspectives

to understand the incentives to cheat in sports and why it matters...or doesn't.
