Outtake from Paul Piff’s riff on Monopoly

It is now official.   A recent enlightened group found themselves learning about what a car symbolizes and means.   Paul Piff, A UC-Berkely pyschologist, cleverly discovered how self-interest is perpetuated by some as wealth increases.  He used a rigged game of monopoly.

And to no surprise the type of vehicle one drives says mounds about your personality.   Those stuck in a jalopy were poor – but in his findings possibly more inclined to share than someone driving a Prius, Escalade or surprisingly a bus.

His talk at TEDx Marin, shown below, actually was tailored around how to cure the increasing disparity in America between the “haves” and “have-nots”.
