Honesty Put to the Test in Omaha

Honesty is being put to the test in downtown Omaha by a company called Honest Tea.

The company was outside the old Spaghetti Works Tuesday collecting data for its social experiment on honesty.

They set up an unmanned kiosk with drinks and asked anyone who took one to pay $1, keeping things on the honor system.

The company calls it the National Honesty Index.

Marketing Manager Cally Casey said, “It's a very credible test or statistical interpretation if you will, and we’re watching you from afar so we like to see how you react, seemingly when no one is watching."

Last year, Nebraskans were above the 92 percent national average, scoring a 96 percent.

The results will be released on August 19th.
