    Exactly. The dollar's value has changed over time-- one would also have to consider that $2.10 is "worth" a lot more to an old person than it is to a young person. Only three people tried to redeem the gift certificate... younger people are more computer-savvy and would be more inclined to think that the gift certificate was fabricated based on its appearance.

    I was impressed that someone drove to our house after finding my Dad's wallet on the highway.
    Apparently he had put it on top of the car when he was getting in, and then drove off without realizing it.
    It finally fell off somewhere.

    It states on the website that the wallets were the cheapest ones the dude could find.

    Maybe I'm cynical, but I believe the fact that only $2.10 was in each wallet makes the survey worthless. Put $100 in there and then see what happens.

    ^ Depends if they gave it back without looking or not, if they looked then I agree.

    Pity this study hasn't passed the peer review test.

    A lot of sloppy assumptions in this experiment.

    What I find annoying about the site was the righteous, passive aggressive, manipulative undertones. People who failed to return the wallet were automatically labelled "dishonest". Notice how often they repeated that chant. That is plain stupid. There could have been many reason why some didn't bother to return it.

    Because the wallet had almost no value, there was no motivation to "steal" it. I also assume it had no items valuable only to the owner, such as ID cards, etc. The stunt is more a measure of how the strictly person follow social rules or how empathic they are to the minor plight of strangers or how much free time they have on their hands. It is not a valid test for honesty.

    They also appear to specifically single out blacks. I wonder if they have a hidden agenda.
