Abstract

This study examines the relationship between leaders’ childhood background and their behavior as adults. In particular, it examines the hypothesis that leaders who have grown up in middle-class are more likely to engage in socially irresponsible (unethical) behavior. Based on qualitative and quantitative data the study tests and finds initial support for the hypothesized relationship.
