Is America Dreaming?: Understanding Social Mobility

http://www.nationalmemo.com/wp-content/uploads/https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2XFh_tD2RA

Brookings Fellow Richard Reeves explores inequality and opportunity in America with Legos, using them to explain the chances for economic success of Americans born at the bottom of the economic ladder. Reeves shows the chances that the poorest fifth of Americans have to rise to the top, based on their race, the marital status of their mothers, and their level of education.
