We often think that people are resistant to change. The truth is that life is ALWAYS changing, no matter what happens. Just like water flowing through a stream, life needs to flow and expand. What happens to water when it is stuck in a puddle? It becomes stagnant and eventually it stinks! The same is true for our lives. We are meant to grow and expand.
We are all aware of the admonition caveat emptor or buyer beware, but we should also add reader beware for studies that purport to deal with complex issues in facile ways. One such recent example is the McKinsey Global Institute's July 2016 Report "Poorer than Their Parents," that examines an important policy issue of inter-generational income patterns, but does not do the topic justice.
