Dave Mayer unpacks the “moral logic of third-party voting” in Fast Company

September 6, 2016

Associate Professor Dave Mayer discusses the causes and consequences of casting a third-party vote in his latest, monthly Fast Company blog. In his post, he explores three main topics, including the desire to be seen as ethical, factors in decision making, and inaction being a form of action. His exploration of these topics reaches a conclusion that uncovers the ethical implications of deciding between the lesser of two evils, while acknowledging the third option of not deciding at all.

David M. Mayer is Associate Professor of Management & Organizations at the Ross School of Business, and a core faculty member of the Center for Positive Organizations. The focus of his research is on the role of ethics in organizations, and it also examines how aspects of the work environment add or detract from ethical decision-making.
