Money on the Mind

Published on Jun 21, 2013 by PBSNewsHour

In a series of startling studies, psychologists at the University of California at Berkeley have found that “upper-class individuals behave more unethically than lower-class individuals.” Ongoing research is trying to find out what it is about wealth — or lack of it — that makes people behave they way they do. Paul Solman reports as part of his Making Sen$e series.

    1. I absolutely agree with ya too RT. I would rather be poor and humble than rich and humbled, and I kind of think that that is what is wrong with most rich people – they are afraid of being humbled and loosing that rich lifestyle. Like I say though not all rich people are snobby types and all but most do seen to be that way. 🙁 🙁

      1. I totally agree, from what I have noticed abt billionaire’s or multi billioners, they (most) are snobby,
        unless they want something from you………I was included in circles because of who I took care of, like you said tho, ya can reach some/few hearts and make a change 🙂

  1. I have always felt that i am well to do because im bright and able. Most people are not. I have always walk humbly and done my best to not acquire possessions just for the sake of it. Maybe this study shows me why and how. Interesting.
    In this world as it is one can very easily manipulate dumb and less able people to give up everything they have. At least 10% of them will just hand it over. That I feel is how many rich types get ahead and stay there. I see no sport in shooting a tethered animal.

    1. If palosi or bush or those types where tethered i would write my name on them. Like dick tracy comics using a tommy gun.
