Economists who write the most about income inequality and stagnant mobility work at some of the most unequal universities in the US.

I saw this graphic HERE and I think of the MANY academic bloggers I read everyday who write about the issue of inequality.

Many/Most of them are employed at the Ivy League schools or upper tier private colleges/universities.

They work at schools that are EXTREMELY unequal (bars over "Most Competitive" and "Competitive") in terms of the rich/poor divide among the student body.

Wonder if they see the irony.

Heard a saying before:  "Think Globally, Act Locally".  Should be more than a bumper sticker on a BMW....

Just an observation.

Note: "Less and None Competitive" schools would be the typical State school or university.  Pretty equal, those are...
