Less Social Mobility

From the Economist, via Stephen Downes, comes this article about declining social mobility in the U.S.: Ever higher society, ever harder to ascend. It's an interesting analysis, pointing out that as the gap between rich and poor widens, it's also becoming harder for most people to move across the gap. What if more people are deciding that they don't want to climb the ladder?
