From Dr. Nick Moore:

Re: Wealthy people found more prone to unscrupulous behavior (Feb. 28): I consider the findings of this research to be unsurprising. What some might find surprising is how long it has taken social psychologists to ask these kinds of questions. Congratulations to Piff and colleagues for reviewing and publishing what many could find to be very uncomfortable results. One conclusion could be that the myth of greed being a part of human nature can be empirically falsified. Thank you for the summary and for notifying us of this interesting study.
