If you grew up in the U.S., you’ve probably believed (and maybe you still do!) that advantage should be earned through ability and effort. You get ahead in this world based on your accomplishments. Right? Well, not so fast. What if this foundational American axiom is all a myth? Daniel Markovits, a professor at Yale and author of “The Meritocracy Trap,” joins Keith on the pod today to discuss. He starts by pointing out the problems with modern-day meritocracy: It feeds inequality, dismantles the middle class, and gives an unfair advantage to the elite. But what other options do we have as a country if our achievement-oriented society isn’t working? And does Markovits attribute his own successes to hard work and good choices or sheer luck? Plus, considering the claims of figures like Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump, and singer Oliver Anthony, does he believe that more and more Americans are “waking up” to the meritocracy myth? Listen now!
