Awesome article about the importance of signalling

I read this article explaining why it might be financially smart for poor people to buy designer. It’s very eye-opening about the persistence of physical appearance in judging and success.

    That completely reminds me of a law firm interview where the candidate showed up with a brightly colored backpack rather than a briefcase. I think it was a male, but it could have been female. I do know that the candidate was immediately off the list. I was shocked at how something so petty could torpedo a candidate’s chances.
