Author and Yale law professor Amy Chua’s new book, ‘The Triple Package,’ lists eight cultural groups that are most prone to success.
Chua, a law professor at Yale University, and her husband, co-author Jed Rubenfeld, list these groups as the most likely to succeed in America: Jewish, Indian, Chinese, Iranian, Lebanese-Americans, Nigerians, Cuban exiles and Mormons.
Chua and Rubenfeld explain that the “cultural groups” have three traits in common, the so-called “triple package”: a superiority complex, insecurity and impulse control.
What are your thoughts on the triple package theory? Would this be true in places other than America? If not ... why only in America?
