Blog #3: Rich Democrats are as Selfish as Rich Republicans

1. This article is about a complex study conducted to determine if high income people value efficiency over equality and compared the political party associations of the people. I chose it because the results were in the articles title/tweet and I found it interesting to know that rich democrats are as selfish as rich republicans.
2. The data is from a hypothesis tested on three groups, Berkley students, Yale students and ALP attendees which provided the broad cross-section of americans.
3. I found it most interesting to see that high income people who are in charge of policy-making don’t care about equality regardless of their political party. Especially because this is a stigma of republicans but democrats are usually seen as more equal. Though I am wondering if the results would have been different if they didn’t compare it to people belonging to the organization ALP and instead the compare group was a random selection of the population.
