On the surface.
In reality.

What we can do to increase mobility.

Pick and choose from all three books

  1. What can the government do? Why do we like this answer?
  2. What can the culture do?
  3. What is up to the individual?
  4. What can't we duplicate?
  5. What's wrong with saying: Marriage
    1. Why are we afraid of saying, Get married?
  6. What's wrong with saying: Public Housing/Childcare/Transportation
    1. Why are we cheap on these issues?
    2. Where would the money come from?
