The growing national concern about economic inequality raises many questions. One has to do with demographic groups. Are some doing better than others? If so, exactly why?
Whites and Asian-Americans are doing a lot better than Hispanics and African-Americans on indices of finance, education, and upward-mobility.
Whites median-income/yr is $130,102 to $134,008; Asian-Americans; $64,165 to $94,440; Hispanics; $9,229 to $13,900; and Blacks are on the lowest-rung of the socio-economic ladder; making just $7,736 to $11,184/yr (from 1989 to 2013)
Promoting what Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, calls a ‘right to rise,’ reducing inequity happens largely though people making better-choices; improving their decisions.
