Book Club: The Meritocracy Trap #1

Welcome back!

This week, we’re kicking off with The Meritocracy Trap by Daniel Markovits. We’re just kicking it off this week, and at most you’ve read chapter one, so there’s still time to get a hold of it.

Let’s start it off with some general chat about meritocracy. Going into it, how do you feel about the concept of a meritocracy? Would you say the place you work or the society you’re in is a meritocracy? Is it a good thing, or better than other systems of allocating resources?

Have you benefitted from a meritocracy? How?
