Is Poverty Genetic?

Today on Far Future Horizons we present another exciting episode  of the acclaimed documentary series Through the Wormhole hosted by Morgan Freeman.

In this installment we explore the question Is Poverty Genetic?

Are the wealthy just born in the right place at the right time? Are the poor victims of a system designed to keep them down? Or do physics and biology determine who is rich and who is poor? Throughout history, distribution of wealth is governed by hidden forces: DNA, environmental stress, patterns of human migration and even the laws of thermodynamics! Nature seems to demand winners and losers in life. But does this mean greed is king, and the rich can take what they want? Or is cooperation – between microorganisms, monkeys, and humans – more essential to survival of a species?

This episode of Through the Wormhole with Moran Freeman can be purchased from Amazon Instant Video.
