Money on the Mind

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.

    Sure. What else is new. Poor people know the value of money and struggle just to survive every day. For poor people to steal requires a deliberate physical act in usually in contact with their victim. The rich never see their victim and they steal just with the stroke of a pen. The penalties for stealing for the poor, even for a small amounts are much harsher than those for the rich. How many bankers have gone to prison for stealing so much that it nearly broke the economy.
