There is no doubt having means beats not having except in certain circumstances. Those in the record industry want to hear sounds that come from the streets rather than from the skyscrapers. Many a break is given to those who achieve better than average in a poor community lacking than one which has many high achievers. People are rooting for your success when you come from know where and expect nothing less when you have the means. To conclude it’s tough to come without means but if you can break through to above-average your chance of success is greater than one with a golden spoon.
FOOTNOTE- Furthermore success is measured in a whole different scale when you come from a poor family rather then one with the green.
