More Money = Meaner and Greedier

I came across this article and video this weekend and just had to share it. Take Two ‘Normal’ People, Add Money To Just One Of Them, And Watch What Happens Next.  We should be interested in this for a number of reasons — but I was actually doing some research related back to the debates on the rise of minimum wage when I discovered this.

The research that they discover is so interesting — you should watch it and come to your own conclusions, but suffice to say, money (even fake money) can change you .. but I wonder why :(.

I’m still trying to make sense of this from and HR perspective. What would the research suggest about a company’s senior leadership and board members? Specialized or hard to obtain talent? Would this, or could it, have an impact on corporate and core values? Is this driving engagement and trust. Way more questions that I have answers for at the time. Hope to circle back around on it though.
