Intergenerational Mobility, Sibling Inequality and Borrowing Constraints.
Gaviria, Alejandro
Economics of Education Review, v21 n4 p331-40 Aug 2002
Studies differences in social mobility between rich and poor families. Finds that borrowing constraints retard social mobility among the poor by preventing poor parents from investing optimally in their children's human capital. Also finds that sibling inequality appears to be independent of parental wealth. (Contains 18 references.) (Author/PKP)
