I disagree. We are trained to think that those who have a lot of possessions or a high status do more work then us. This is almost never true. They might not be doing nothing (might), but they aren't working harder then us.
Sometimes you can see this in new wealthy, or newly promoted. They think they should be working harder, so they make a bunch of decisions they don't know anything about and micromanage people around them. They usually learn better after awhile.
