What needs to be remembered is that this behaviour was learned, mostly because it's exactly what we were taught.

To an extent, that's very true, but the economic situation also plays a part, I think. I'm not economic reductionist, but I still can't help pointing to Figure 1 on page 7 of that study.

The goal/value "Becoming well off financially" started its 20 year rise in importance in the early 1970s, essentially the same time real incomes in the USA began to stagnate.
