The dishonesty illuminated in people after the pearl is discovered is directly related to one thing..... greed. Kino's desires are marked by what the pearl can afford him; the pearl agents are driven by the prospect of money and collectively cheat in order to garner the price most advantageous to themselves; the doctor doesn't care for Coyotito, but he's willing to put himself out to attain what Kino has found; the people are jealous, and it drives them to violence.
