PBS: Money on the Mind

Jul 2013

This report from PBS takes a look at a Berkeley University study that examines the psychology of wealth and its influence on generosity and altruism. The findings? Yeah, people with more money are jerks. Plenty can attest to that, but this time that person is science!

Still tracking down a copy of the study, but the video documents a good portion of researcher Paul Piff’s methodology and the results, while not very surprising, is still fairly disturbing in its practical implications.
