Ethnicity and Success

Listen in pop-out player

Why do some ethnic groups in the US prosper more than others? We break a taboo and look at the link between culture and success. Presenter Manuela Saragosa speaks to Tiger Mother Amy Chua - of Chinese origin - and her Jewish-American husband Jed Rubenfeld about why Nigerians, Mormons, Indians and Lebanese seem to do better than other immigrant groups.

She hears from financial strategist Nicholas Colas about his research into whether Americans really care about inequality in their country. And, we hear from business consultant Steve Fritzinger about whether inequality is really a problem if nobody is suffering real hardship.
