Two olympians have been stripped of their medals in the past week. Just today we’ve learned that a Belarussian shot putter lost her gold medal due to doping. An olympic champion cyclist also lost a medal last week due to doping during the 2004 Olympics!

We can also see the same type of discoveries happening in business over the past decade, where notables from Rupert Murdoch to Conrad Black Bernie Madoff have come under scrutiny for questionable practices, in some cases ending up in jail for long periods of time.

And what about the scandal at Penn State football.

The lesson here is simple. If you partake in questionable, unethical, or illegal practices, sooner or later, someone will discover it. Why not be as ethical as possible?
