In Our Self-Interest
This chapter builds a case on self-interest. Poverty drains Americans both individually and as a community and society. Each individual directly and indirectly pays a high price for allowing poverty to walk in the midst of society. The chapter discusses a set of analyses that demonstrates for the first time the fact that the majority of Americans experience poverty at some point during their lives. Unbeknownst to many, poverty touches Americans in their own backyard. Such a connection is demonstrated.
