In 2012 UC Berkeley did a series of studies on Greed.  Below is the 2013 TedTalk where Paul Piff, one of the researchers, discusses the results of those studies. The description of the video provided by TedTalks:

“It’s amazing what a rigged game of Monopoly can reveal. In this entertaining but sobering talk, social psychologist Paul Piff shares his research into how people behave when they feel wealthy.
