ADAPTED FROM BBC NEWS LESSONS / APRIL 2015

A PROFESSOR [teacher] says money often makes people bad. He studied [to learn about] the actions of rich people. They were very different from the actions of poor people. Rich people often break [do not obey] rules and laws. They often do not care about others. They also cheat more at games. Money makes some people think about themselves and the things they want. Poorer people are often kinder than rich people. They give more of their money to help others. The professor found that poor people are some of the most generous people on earth.
