Abstract

This podcast examines the decrease in social and economic mobility in the United States and the effect it has on both the rich and the poor. Mobility has been decreased by a number of factors including funding based on property taxes, a changed interpretation of cultural fit and an overestimation of economic mobility by the general public. This decrease in mobility is apparent in society today but is not being realized by the public. In order to illustrate why this decreasing mobility is such an issue, we are going to analyze the reasons why it is happening and how it effects everyone in their own way.
