There's no way to assess the amount of lying in a culture as far as I know.

What I do know is that verification techniques help establish trust and take lying out of the mix.  While you can't eliminate lying, at a certain point it causes transactions to become dysfunctional.

A good place to witness that dysfunction you are suggesting is to go to a busy mall a week before Christmas. That's our society that allows the greedy sie of capitalism to lead us around by the nose.

I think China is discovering a better way and their is going to have to be exclusive of religious superstitions. That's poison in a 21st. century society.
