Are observed class gradients in cognitive frameworks cause or effect of those socioeconomic differences? This question is of critical importance not just for policymakers and psychologists but for all social scientists, including market researchers.

This commentary offers various theories for this observed correlation within the context of recent psychological and sociological scholarship.
