In general, the wealthy seem less inclined to be more compassionate about the world, the people in it, and animals, and more inclined about how to increase their own personal estates. Having compassion and/or a conscience, and having wealth as well seem like very rare combinations.

Apparently there is a psychological correlation between wealth and feelings of entitlement.

There doesn't seem to be much connection between having wealth and having any conscience in how one should live with one's wealth.

Money gives you the power to act, so if you have a "good heart" you act for the good of people. I met people whom had been poor when they were young and then made quiet good money and being without compassion for poor people. People are selfish or not,compassionate or not!

The more money people make, the more they lose compassion for those without it. I've seen it time and time again. They begin to look at have-nots like it's their fault they are struggling. How fast the self-righteous fall, however. We are all just a job loss and then a few paychecks away from disaster ourselves. This lack of compassion seems to be a very American thing that is applauded in a society that says you're a loser if you care more for your fellow beings than the latest Michael Kors camouflage print, cowhide boots with matching green dress and green-faced designer watch.
