Rich People Have Less Compassion, Psychology Research Suggests

(Scientific American)



Who is more likely to lie, cheat, and steal—the poor person or the rich one? It’s tempting to think that the wealthier you are, the more likely you are to act fairly.

But research suggests the opposite is true: as people climb the social ladder their compassionate feelings towards other people decline.
