    In the 21st century, children who are born upper middle & upper class will have exceedingly high chances to be highly successful because their parents are able to provide them myriad educational, networking, & specifically socioeconomic opportunities to succeed.  Yes, a child born into upper middle & upper class circumstances WILL succeed.

    Conversely, children born into lower, working, & lower middle class circumstances have lesser chances to succeed because their parents can't afford them the educational, networking, & socioeconomic opportunities necessary to become highly successful.  Such children are lucky if they keep their heads above water.  In this century, the only children who will become highly successful are born into upper middle & upper class environments.  Your thoughts?

      Even if you define "life success" as "lots of money" (a very poor definition: "money is the root of all evil" has too much truth to it) it still doesn't work.  Far too many spoiled brats are "successful" only as long as mommy and daddy continue to shovel their wealth/earnings to their worthless, non-producing child.
