    Hubris and Unethical Decision Making: The Tragedy of the Uncommon.Joseph McManus - 2018 - Journal of Business Ethics 149 (1):169-185.
    The research theorizes how hubris impacts ethical decision making and develops empirical evidence that earnings manipulation is more likely at firms led by CEOs influenced by hubris.

    Organizations have become essential institutions that facilitate the vital coordination and cooperation necessary to create value across societies. Recent research within moral psychology and behavioral ethics indicates that emotions play a pivotal role in promoting ethical decision making.
