Sasha Abramsky, The American Way of Poverty

I'm just now seeing this.

I used to study U.S. anti-poverty policy in great detail. With the appointment Dr. Ben Carson as H.U.D. Secretary, perhaps we'll have a real discussion of poverty in America.

And of course, many in the white working class suffer from the same pathologies as the black underclass --- a point J.D. Vance raises in his book, Hillbilly Elegy --- so it's all the more vital from a public policy perspective.

In any case, see Sasha Abramsky, The American Way of Poverty: How the Other Half Still Lives.
