The Sociology of Success by Thomas Sowell : Skills Matter
Great talk by Thomas Sowell, despite the moderators attempt to sensationalize his statements here and there. After listening a few times, here’s what I come away with. Skills should take priority over politics, at least initially, and culture plays a part in a group’s success. Some might see this as harsh, others see it as knowledge they can use to avoid being part of the statistics. That difference of perspective is most likely also a factor that may contribute to success.
