Tongue in Cheek: Is honesty the best business policy?

Nothing like a good allegory to get the business thoughts flowing for the weekend.

Forget the rose-colored glasses. You're a realist. You see things with clarity and refuse to be deluded by hype. Your colleagues are practically married to their business ideas, but you speak your mind, hurt feelings be damned.

So, in the business world, does it pay to forthright, candid, even blunt to the point of pain? Or is it best to sit down and shut up? It's not easy knowing which is best.
