Being wealthy does something to how we treat others. Just having more makes us more inclined to unethical behaviour towards them - Berkeley University study.

The Wealthy are Unfit to Govern: need proof ..?

Why those who feel they have less give more

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.” What is surprising though is that we are all susceptible to that same mind-set. Even the long-term poor will begin to look down their noses as soon as they can.

Ongoing research is trying to find out what it is about wealth — or lack of it — that makes rich people behave they way they do. This confirms Charles Dickens' portrayal of William, the father of Amy Dorritt, in his novel 'Little Dorritt'.
