Social climbers and rich kids on the skids

There have been articles in the news section of the Wall Street Journal (it's a pay-for-play site, so no linky love here) and in the New York Times about some new studies that purport to prove that social mobility in America, one of the great strengths of our society, is becoming a myth. Alan Reynolds says that the newsies aren't telling the whole story. Big surprise there, huh?
