a PSC In The News reference, 2015

"The Rich Kids of Instagram are a product of extreme inequality, and they’re not afraid to show it" - Washington Post. 07/14/2015.

Rich Kids of Instagram, a blog chronicling the lives of the young, rich, conspicuous consumers who post on Instagram, has drawn more than voyeurism. Blog comments show public outrage over America's social and political inequality. The author of this piece looks at facets of that inequality, citing findings from Martha Bailey and Susan Dynarski on socioeconomic disparities in college entry and graduation rates.
