Poverty in America
Cause or Effect?Book - 2010
In the land of plenty, about 12 percent of the population regular goes without. WE think of Poverty as something that affects other people, elsewhere-or we used to. In recent years, as unemployment and grown to proportions unseen for generations and social services have shrunk, poverty has become something of which far too many Americans have intimate knowledge. But who's to blame and how can we fix it? In poverty in America: Cause or Effect?, Joan Axelrod-Contrada looks at all the different ways of being broke in America, how poverty came to be, and what the arguments are about how to solve this terrible problem.
