Abstract

The current conflation of success with money prevents us from understanding, and therefore addressing, social mobility problems, writes Graeme Atherton. What we need to do is adopt a more holistic definition of success, one that includes progression in well-being across a range of areas, as opposed to one that measures it solely on salary and occupation changes.
