    Thanks Andrew. I will try to get there if possible. In my recent discussion paper I cite the Mayer Lopoo article of 2005 and note that it is one of the few studies showing an upward trend in mobility in the USA – which she attributes to increased government investment in early education. Most other studies show the trend as stable (or even declining). I also comment in my paper that their results are fragile because the sample is small and the time period limited. But she may have refined her analysis since then.

    If I can’t get there, perhaps someone could ask Susan Mayer how she sees the trend relative to the Nordic countries. .
