It is easy for anyone to return a wallet and feel righteous about the act.
But it becomes harder when the wallet contains a life-changing amount.
Same thing for family inheritance. There’s nothing to fight for when the amount is small. Sibling relationships are worth more.
But not with multi-million dollar inheritance. There’s everything to fight for, sibling or not is irrelevant.
Business partners maintain good relations when the business is making little money.
But it is a different story when the business is bringing in truckloads of money. Partners will fight among one another to gain control of it.
Corruption is not worth it when the amount is too small to risk a career and reputation.
But it becomes harder to refuse when the amount is enough to retire.
