This paper develops a model where income inequality and intergenerational mo- bility are jointly determined via redistributive politics. The model includes two key factors: accessibility of tertiary education for poor-born agents and multiple self- ful?lling expectations of agents. Given these factors, the model provides predictions of cross-country differences in inequality and mobility consistent with empirical ob- servations.
