This is a strong image. To me, the image shows the advantages that come with wealth. It's hard for me to say that wealth causes success, but there seems to be a strong correlation. I noted that 90% of our class valedictorians come from families at the 5% income level. I've noticed that teams that win state championships come from school districts where there is a high income per family. The wealthy have fewer health problems, fewer daily problems, and more access to resources. There's a old saying that goes, "the first million is the hardest". Wealth seems to build on wealth sustaining the advantages that ride along with it.
