The Meritocracy Trap

I enjoyed this perspective to the condition of the workforce and what got us here. Twenty years ago my professors we talking about the diminishing middle class. This gives an explanation to why that is happening. It also pushes very hard on how the elite are continuing to pull ahead. All that said the book does get a little repetitive, but I feel like it is good information. This is something I would love to look at more in depth. Part of the fix that he calls out is availability of top tier education. It will be interesting to see if we can get that to happen with the push to online education. I will be surprised if the Ivy League does not cash into that market. I do not agree that there is no hope for the future, but I do expect that it will look different that any of us could imagine.
