In this episode, Prof. Daniel Markovits of Yale Law School speaks to Nicolas Wittstock about the US labor market, education system, and economic inequality. In his book "The Meritocracy Trap", Prof. Daniel Markovits argues that the US meritocratic system favors richer children, while creating enormous educational demands. As a result, the middle and lower classes are increasingly locked out of meaningful economic engagement, while high-skilled workers are trapped in a constant cycle of education, fierce competition, and evaluation.
