Jack Mulligan Research Proposal

Empathy is a topic encompassing a wide array of debate. There are many questions as to the role that empathy and this leads to the constant drive for people to find trends with empathy. I am going to identify one of these trends. I am going to look at trends in empathy at two levels of income. One aspect will be looking at how empathy differs among socio-economic classes in specified locations (countries). In addition to this, I will look at how different countries classified by wealth compare in overall sense of empathy. The combination of these two points of research will help make advance in answering the question “How does empathy differ across socio-economic groups”
