Is Volkswagen the Lance Armstrong of the Car Industry?

The revelations of Volkswagen manipulating emissions tests show how fibbing with one’s impact on society can lead to big legal and reputational consequences. Apparently, the German automaker deemed the upside of selling large numbers of cars more attractive than the risk of getting caught with fraudulent software.
