In business, we don't care if someone is honest or hypocritical. We're
not too much concerned about the authenticity of the product. We
usually buy a product, based on our budget. If it fits our need which

From the personal perspective, the lower price enormously fits ourbudget. However, it can be problematic and ambiguous if folks choose
the lower price product for business or industrial applications. These
are the ethical issues of legitimacy, integrity and public confidence.
The decision to manage hypocrisy or simply to ignore it depends on the
extent, necessity and care for public trust. In good lessons of
leadership, folks do not teach people how not to be hypocritical. They
simply act and show honesty, integrity in their behaviors and conducts.
