The New York Times points out a study that seems to demonstrate that some people are willing to work too hard and earn too much.

The study isn't that new. It was published in the journal Psychological Science in June. But its findings are quite remarkable. It shows, according to the Times, that people have a "deeply rooted instinct to earn more than can possibly be consumed, even when this imbalance makes us unhappy."
