Summary
How important is luck in economic success? No question more reliably divides Conservatives from Liberals. As Conservatives correctly observe, people who amass great fortunes are almost always talented and hardworking. But Liberals are also correct to note that countless others have those same qualities yet never earn much. In recent years, social scientists have discovered that chance plays a much larger role in important life outcomes than most people imagine
