The Ethicist: Inflating Food Costs

NPR's Steve Inskeep talks to New York Times Magazine ethicist Randy Cohen and "Vic" in Washington state about Vic's ethical dilemma. Vic is a food wholesaler whose customers, the distributors, want him to submit inflated invoices and kick back the difference to them. This drives up the prices consumers pay.
