Mourning

GapHere is a really interesting study on inheritance in America. In a nutshell, you are more likely to receive an inheritance if you are already wealthy; there are also significant gaps that fall along racial lines, with non-Hispanic whites receiving far more inheritances than African-Americans and Hispanics.

You can read the whole study at FiveThirtyEight.
