Why Do the Poor Make Such Poor Decisions? | Rutger Bregman

"Education makes almost no difference at all. This is not to say no one learns anything — poor people can come out wiser, for sure. But it’s not enough. 'It’s like teaching a person to swim and then throwing them in a stormy sea,' laments Professor Shafir."
