@Kimmio - when I say "acquire", I'm simply saying that it is something that develops or occurs - not that it is sought after. Such as in 'acquired brain injury' which is a commonly accepted term - not a sought after circumstance/outcome, but one that does happen. Generational poverty and acquired poverty are quite different IMO, and in any literature I have read. And I agree - life is generally not a meritocracy - becoming less so as we see the post-war 'middle class' eroding.
