Private wealth has been inherited in Germany, UK, Switzerland, France

An interesting Tweet by Marcel Fratzscher (Professor for Macroeconomics at Humboldt University) got me thinking about the relationship between effort and luck, and entrepreneurship and inter-generational mobility. He references European countries, but is an issue in developing countries.


The comments in response to the Tweet are interesting as well.


Hat Tip: Found this via a discussion on  (which is a community for Indie Makers) and I think indicates how the discussion on inequality is becoming more common.
