    Faisal Bari Access to resources, physical or human, in our economy is based on who you are born to, and what sort of resources your ancestors acquired. If you are a part of the elite, the probability that you will continue to be in the elite is high. However, if you were one of the masses, it is quite unlikely you will achieve major economic/social mobility. And, instead of opening up, the last two decades seem to have reduced opportunities for mobility even more. If you add the gender angle to this, the story becomes almost tragic: can the Sobias of Pakistan have any hope?
