Resource Scarcity, Socioeconomic Status and Conformity: the Impact of Resource Scarcity on Responses to Social Influence Depends on Childhood Environments.

Specifically, resource scarcity increases conformity to social influence among people who grew up in poor environments but does not have an effect on people who grew up in rich environments.
