The mathematical oddity that enables the super rich, and more
Projects from The Pudding about economic mobility, emotional awareness, and why the rich get richer.
How do the neighborhoods that we grow up in shape who we are? Inspired by research from The Opportunity Atlas, author Aaron Williams tells a data story about economic mobility, family, and coming home.
Like a lot of us, Abby VanMuijen didn’t used to pay much attention to their feelings—until they got to be too much. Abby shares what they’ve learned since then, taking us on an illustrated, interactive journey through our own emotions.
