It may have something to do with centuries of cocky, mean upper class gentry types from other civilizations- nobles in feudal Europe and Japan, scholar-gentry in China, etc. Back then, if you were the king's best bud, you'd be in the money, but that could change at the drop of a hat. So when the next dynasty came in and appointed their friends, the people who had previously been on the receiving end of the stick were now holding the stick, so they used it to lash out and get back at everyone else. I think that continued to today and now most everyone who is rich acts this way. The other theory is that poor people are more generous because they know what it's like to be poor and therefore will help out others more willingly.
