Social Entrepreneurship Blog
See your posts here – and my comments (coming soon).
At the end of the microfinance class, I made the brazen claim that there is less social mobility in the US than in any developed country except the UK. I left class thinking I should find the GINI index information that supports such a claim and provide some support! As it turns out (under the category that it’s better to be lucky than to be good), the Economist, hardly a liberal rag, recently published a special topics section on the growing inequality in the world, and the need to reduce inequality’s corrosive effects. See October 13th-19th issue, available through the TU library.
More specifically, please follow this link to a short article, “Like father, not like son: Measuring social mobility.” http://www.economist.com/node/21564417.
