Over the long run income is more powerful than any ideology or religion in shaping lives. No God has commanded worshippers to their pious duties more forcefully than income as it subtly directs the fabric of our lives. -Gregory Clark in A Brief Economic History of the World.

    Thanks for the tip. I read the introduction online and now plan to stop at Powell’s and pick up the book on the way home.

    Clark should give you a small cut!
