18. Education certainly helps

 

Given the unemployment level for those with a bachelor's degree is a bit under half the rate for those with a high school degree, education would at least slow the increase of economic inequality.

But there are structural issues that have been put in place since the 1970s that encourage the consolidation of wealth. Jacob Hacker and Paul Pierson do a good job exploring this in their book Winner Take All Politics.
