    Gregory Clark received his degree in Economics from Harvard University in His main current research, detailed in his new book, The Son Also Rises: Surnames and the History of Social Mobility, uses the information content of surnames to estimate the rate and nature of inter-generational social mobility in a variety of societies, including the USA. His research indicated that working-class families were more likely to experience poverty at particular stages during the life cycle when they were economically vulnerable (e.g., when starting a new family or during retirement). Likewise, Hunter () in his book, Poverty, attempted to place impoverishment within the context of the life course.

      Research commissioned by the Labour party shows that the number of books borrowed from libraries fell from ,, in to ,, in – a 38% decrease. Learning to run faster may keep you or me out of poverty, but it won’t get rid of poverty itself. To do that, we have to change the system along with how people participate in it. Instead of splitting the ‘winnings’ into shares of 48 percent, 23 percent, 15 percent, 10 percent, and 4 percent, for example, we might divide them into shares.
