As a future accountant, you may encounter bank statements that may seem they belong to small countries. New research suggests that these bank account holders are the ones you might want to keep an eye on. The study shows that rich people lie, cheat, and steal far more frequently than people of lower¹ status. In other words – rich people are unethical.
It is suggested that people with large amounts of money may give the wealthy a greater feeling of entitlement causing those people to feel like they can get away with practically anything. Another study shows that rich people also have a difficult time recognizing facial expressions – emphasizing the idea that rich people lack empathy.
