The Lost Wallet Experiment

Helsinki Good, Lisbon Bad? Well, according to this ‘Honesty Arc’ of different cities, if you have to lose your wallet, you should definitely do it in Helsinki. There, eleven out of 12 billfolds purposely dropped  were returned. And the worst place to do that, according to the Reader’s Digest survey this is based on, is Lisbon.


  1. Leaving just 12 wallets in one city will not give you any statistically reliable results. Also different neighborhoods will always react diffrently to lost wallets. But in my opinion this is propaganda. Look at Mumbai’s results and then look at the name of the maker.
