  • New York Times op-ed by Gregory Clark — economics
    Home News Info New York Times op ed by Gregory Clark Reprises the central argument in his new book The Son Also Rises Clark writes in Your Ancestors Your Fate on February 21 2014 read the full article here When you look across centuries and at social status broadly measured not just income and wealth but also occupation education and longevity social mobility is much slower than many of us believe or want to believe This is true in Sweden a social welfare state England where industrial capitalism was born the United States one of the most heterogeneous societies in history and India a fairly new democracy hobbled by the legacy of caste Capitalism has not led to pervasive rapid mobility Nor have democratization mass public education the decline of nepotism redistributive taxation the emancipation of women or even as in China socialist revolution To a striking extent your overall life chances can be predicted not just from your parents status but also from your great great great grandparents The recent study suggests that 10 percent of variation in income can be predicted based on your parents earnings In contrast my colleagues and I estimate that 50 to 60 percent of variation in overall status is determined by your lineage The fortunes of high status families inexorably fall and those of low status families rise toward the average what social scientists call regression to the mean but the process can take 10 to 15 generations 300 to 450 years much longer than most social scientists have estimated in the past We came to these conclusions after examining reams of data on surnames a surprisingly strong indicator of social status in eight countries Chile China England India Japan South Korea Sweden and the United States going back centuries Across all of them rare or distinctive surnames associated with elite families many generations ago are still disproportionately represented among today s elites Does this imply that individuals have no control over their life outcomes No In modern meritocratic societies success still depends on individual effort Our findings suggest however that the compulsion to strive the talent to prosper and the ability to overcome failure are strongly inherited We can t know for certain what the mechanism of that inheritance is though we know that genetics plays a surprisingly strong role Alternative explanations that are in vogue cultural traits family economic resources social networks don t hold up to scrutiny If we are right that nature predominates over nurture and explains the low rate of social mobility is that inherently a tragedy It depends on your point of view The idea that low status ancestors might keep someone down many generations later runs against most people s notions of fairness But at the same time the large investments made by the super elite in their kids like those of the Manhattan hedge funders who spend a fortune on preschool are of no avail in preventing long run downward mobility Our findings do suggest
