Playing by the Rules: Ethics at Work

Engine Trouble

Season 2 Episode 1 | 26m 46s

Volkswagen set an ambitious goal – to become the world’s largest car company by developing a new, clean-burning diesel car engine. Instead, that effort would result in the biggest scandal in the history of the auto industry. Playing by the Rules goes inside the VW emissions scandal to reveal how the hubris of senior executives led to an elaborate cover-up once regulators started asking questions.
