Social psychologist, Paul Piff shares his research into how people behave when they feel wealthy.  In this new TED TALK Piff demonstrates that increased wealth and status in society lead to increased self-focus and, in turn, decreased compassion, altruism, and ethical behavior.

Through multiple studies including a rigged game of Monopoly or tracking driving behavior of people who drive expensive cars versus inexpensive car, Paul notes some disturbing affects wealth can have.
