America- land of opportunity

Joseph E. Stiglitz, Nobel Laureate:

I wish it were the case that America was the land of opportunity, but we have become one of the nations among the advanced countries with the least opportunity. In the United States, the life chances of young people are more dependent on the income and education of their parents than in almost any other advanced country.
