Adams, S. (1996).  Dogbert's Top Secret Management Handbook.
"Lying isn't a good idea in nonwork situations because bad things can happen if you get caught. But when you're dealing with employees, they have few retaliatory options as long as you keep the supply cabinet locked. And if you lose their trust, you can always use fear and intimidation to get the same results. There's no real risk." (sec. 1.13)
Bok, S. (1979).  Lying : Moral Choice in Public and Private Life.
"Self-defensive lies can permeate all one does, so that life turns into 'living a lie.' Professionals involved in collective practices of deceit give up all ordinary assumptions about their own honesty and that of others." (p. 79)
Genua, R. L. (1992).  Managing Your Mouth: An Owner's Manual for Your Most Important Business Asset.
"...deception is carried out when a group of individuals conspire to ensure that the sanctity of their mission is protected...Quite frequently in government and industry it is a perfectly normal and accepted practice to carry out deception. The intent of deception is to keep the enemy or adversary in the dark to protect and safeguard vital information. It is common practice that is exercised at the highest levels of federal government and the highest levels in the private sector." (p. 166)
