I really liked Richard Wilkinson’s talk. The most important parts of it to me were the lack of social mobility and the influence of parents wealth on their kids success. That is exactly counter to the “pull yourself up by your bootstraps” “anyone can make it in America” idea that is pushed by politicians and even ourselves. I like that he mentioned the French Revolution. While I dont think we are there yet I think the frustration with the current system is getting pretty clear.
