Who cheats & lies more?

Who cheats more, the working class to escape poverty or the “well off” class because they feel entitled?

And,

who cheats more, the believers, god-fearing people or atheists, agnostics?

 

*** UPDATE ***
 

A new study says rich people are more likely to engage in unethical behaviour than their poorer counterparts – like cutting off motorists, lying in a negotiation and cheating to win a prize. That’s the finding from researchers at the University of California and the University of Toronto, published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America. Do you buy the study?

[] Rich people are less likely to engage in unethical behavior
