Financial Friday: Rigged Monopoly and Psychology (TED Talk)

In this TED talk focuses on how a person may psychologically react to feeling rich.   Paul Piff shares his research that utilized a rigged game of Monopoly to show how people behave when they feel wealthy.  This is super intersting to a nerd like myself, but is also really telling ….think of the recent statement from Shark Tank Investor Kevin O’Leery.  O’Leery delighted in the fact that 85 of the richest folks on Earth are worth as much as half of the entire worlds population.   So this talk really looks at how the mind can make sense of advantage, great incite.  Enjoy (as I defend my qualifying exams….oy…happy thoughts are most welcome!)!
