In a new publication, Patrick develops a framework to understand secrets and lies. For every secret there is at least one lie. Rational man is dedicated to telling the truth when he is in a position to know, and act. Telling the truth has become a behavioural norm in society. Patrick argues that there is a no-truth equilibrium and honesty may not be the best policy!Answers can only be found in arguing that honesty makes sense because we cannot fool reality.
