Inequality Generation and Persistence as Multidimensional Processes. Michele Lamont, February 2019, Paper, "Rising inequality is widely seen as among our most pressing social concerns, and a focal point for social science research.2 Much of the concern, amplified by the argument in Thomas Piketty’s Capital in the Twenty-First Century,3 centers on the prospect that inequality may take extremely durable forms. It is not just that some are advantaged or disadvantaged, but that structures of advantage and disadvantage may become more self-reinforcing and cumulative.4 It is the persistence and deepening of inequality that raises many of the most troubling issues."
