This passage mainly focuses on two aspects. One is the irrational behavior people make while dealing with issues that involve gain and loss. The other is the analysis of one major economic incentive for people to cheat, experiments for testing the theory that money can be a strong incentive for cheating, and measures to prevent it. The author finds out that people have a universal preference for things that are free to obtain and an active dislike of loss. This natural preference may result in irrational decision-making while trading. Moreover, the author proves through experiment that money can be a highly influential incentive for people to commit dishonest behavior.
