Nobel laureate, Prof. James Heckman, presented the research results on social mobility...involving data from the US and Denmark. The analysis focused on the relationship between educational attainment as well as income of children (during adulthood) and the income, wealth and education of the parents. The level of educational mobility is comparable in both countries, although the income mobility is much larger in Denmark. This difference is mainly the result of the current tax, pension and redistribution system, as well as of the lower wage inequality in Denmark.
