Abstract

Intergenerational mobility has been seen as influenced by both level of economic development and political democracy. Here, with a sample of 24 countries, the first of these relationships is assessed. The observed effect of economic development on mobility is a spurious consequence of the shape of the stratification system, indicated by the shape of both reward distributions and occupational distributions. -Authors
