SL 664

Observations from a teacher, who shadows a high school student for the day.

Cringe-worthy interview featuring Cara Delevigne and some perky morning news anchors.

If you’re going to be an entrepreneur, it helps to be rich. (The no-duh study of the day.) Also, rich people raise rich kids. (Annoyed yet?)

  1. That Atlantic article raises some questions. Other studies I have seen measure income, and find quite low correlations between adopted children and their adoptive parents. In measuring wealth, surely you have to exclude the directly inherited wealth, don’t you? Obviously that will cause a correlation between children and parents, but it isn’t subtle cultural learning, or personal connections, or any of the hidden injuries of class that cause the correlation under those circumstances.


    1. Why should we exclude inheritance? It has the same effect (of preserving ses across generations), potentially even more strongly than just transmitting one’s genetic predisposition towards frugality.
