Don’t listen to this guy! He’s going to stop you – and others – from being cheated, with his, ugh, well-informed, thoughtful plan.

“Even the most sophisticated investors react emotionally and quickly,” says JPM’s Kreisler

Yeah, that’s the point! That’s how we cheat ’em! Shhhhh

The Science of Cheating

April 18, 2019

The nerve of this guy!

Here’s some clown, calling himself “Jeff Kreisler,” giving a talk about the Behavioral Science of Compliance. Like people and organizations really want to know what unseen forces influence our ethical decision-making and how we can create systems for better outcomes? As if!

Companies want standard, boring, easily-ignored, box-checking compliance programs that assure neither behavior nor attitudes will ever change, right? No need to provide new, exciting, engaging and actionable insights when you can just keep cheating. This dumb dumb head…

Fun small print: The report is based on tax withholding data and does not include stock options or other forms of deferred compensation.

No Sugar, Sherlock

September 20, 2017

GOP wiseguy Rick Wilson writes Memo to Trump Fans: Conman-in-Chief Will Betray You All

The Cheater Says: Yeah, no duh. That’s what great cheaters do. My question for you, “Rick Wilson,” is why are you spilling the beans instead of cheating your way to eating your own big slice of grifter-pie? Plenty to go around…

Cheating prevention: Read this other book

September 18, 2017

The reviews have started pouring in for The Cheater’s new book, Dollars And Sense.

“Engaging and funny, rife with anecdotes and advice, the book defangs a difficult topic while teaching a lot.” – Publisher’s Weekly

“A lively look at how even the wisest among us are too often fools eager to part with our money… A user-friendly and often entertaining treatise on how to be a more discerning, vastly more aware handler of money.” – Kirkus Reviews


Dollars and Sense hc c

The Cheater Says
: You can use the book for good. Or you can use it for REALLY GOOD (winky face). Up to you (other, creepier winky face).

Papa’s Got A Brand New Cheat

May 30, 2017

From The Cheater himself (taking a break from advising the President):

I’m excited to reveal the cover of my new book, “Dollars and Sense: How We Misthink Money and How to Spend Smarter.”
I wrote it with the amazing Dan Ariely (“Predictably Irrational”) and it will officially hit shelves on November 7th.


Dollars and Sense hc c

I’ve got a lot more coming in the behavioral science space – after all, what is comedy if not the study of human behavior? – but this is the beginning.

Forgive my pending self-promotion (I hate it more than you do).Nonetheless, I am excessively proud of this book. Took a LOT of work and a LOT of time and well, here you go.

More soon…

Wells Fargo opened a couple million fake accounts.

The Cheater Says: I love these guys. Remember: You can fool some of the people all of the time, all of the people some of the time, or about 5 million people at once if you’re a bank.
