Oh, yeah, this is helpful
: Getaloada this lead on a “study” from Ohio State:
A new national study shows that religious affiliation plays a powerful role in how much wealth Americans accumulate, with Jews amassing the most wealth and conservative Protestants the least.
There’s no “role,” there’s merely a data correlation, not a cause. Is this just another way to say that Jews live around big cities and get good educations and good jobs and conservative Protestants live in small towns in trailers and work in gas stations? This is a ridiculous, quite useless — and possibly harmful — act of academic oversimplification and stereotyping. And I have to say I’m not heartened that I found it via die Zeit.
