According to the recent social experiment conducted by Reader’s Digest, India’s financial centre and the largest city Mumbai has appeared as the second most honest city in the world.
The survey was done through Reader’s Digest by dropping wallets in sixteen cities namely, Amsterdam, Berlin, Bucharest, Budapest, Helsinki, Lisbon, Ljubljana, London, Madrid, Moscow, Mumbai, New York, Prague, Rio De Janeiro, Warsaw, and Zurich and then recording the number of wallets that were being returned. The wallets that were being dropped contain things like a cellphone number, a family photo, and the equivalent of $50 (Rs 4,000), says reports by India Times.
11/12 dropped wallets got returned, and the world’s first most honest city emerged as Helsinki of Finland, whereas the second most honest city turned out by Mumbai by returning 9/12 wallets. It was being told to Reader’s digest that Finns were naturally honest people, with little corruption. People who returned the wallet were a 27-year-old video editor, a mother of two, and three young adults say Reader’s Digest, with 8/12 wallets returned Budapest of Hungary turned out to be the third most honest city in the world.
Whereas Lisbon in Portugal was the city marked as most badly in being honest with returning only 1/12 wallet and the couple in their sixties who returned the wallet were not from Lisbon, they were visitors from Holland. Others have taken the wallet to their home with all the money inside it, says the report by Reader’s Digest.
