Are Rich People Less Moral? 1040

sciencehabit writes "New research suggests that the upper classes are more likely to behave dishonorably than those lower on the economic spectrum. The rich are more likely to cheat, steal, and even disobey traffic laws than those with less money and power (abstract). Curiously, in one experiment, Prius drivers also behaved badly, regardless of their wealth."

Comment Terrible (Score 0) 107

Terrible decision. Network neutrality (or lack there of) is a technical decision. Don't need people who don't understand the technical details and the impact of such a policy make those decisions. This is nothing more than lobbying and politics being played with the SEC which is a body that should remain politic free.

Comment Just What We Need.... (Score 0) 572

Just what we need, more government to deal with too much government. How about TSA agents who are working in the back room are not allowed to have cell phones and have that law punishable by automatic termination and 90 days in jail. That would solve the possible problem of cell phone cameras overnight.

So the federal government will subsidize the research costs of private organizations who will reap all of the profit (of commercially viable technology) while taking all of the risk while on the other side, the taxpayer will continue to subsidize politicians pet projects (Solyndra) of technology that has no commercial value. Great deal for corporations, bad deal for the consumer.

LOL, Kickstarter is the biggest scam on the planet. So I give them money to develop a product. *I* take the *risk* and they reap all of the reward. If I am going to invest into an idea, it will be for equity in that idea, not a free ride for someone else to possibly make millions..

Who know the earths climate changes over time. If you look at the graphs (http://berkeleyearth.org/analysis.php) you can see that the warming period skyrocketed in the 1970s yet didn't during the industrial revolution. What is at dispute is the *cause* of the temperature fluctuations. Some believe that it is simply the earths natural cycles while others (usually those who have a financial interest) believe that it is caused 100% by man.
