Abstract:

"Combining scholarly analysis with a human-centered approach, this two-part series looks at the causes and effects of economic hardship in the United States while suggesting ways for society to combat the cycle of poverty. Situational, multigenerational, elder, and child poverty are all addressed through conversations with those who know hunger or homelessness firsthand. Leading socioeconomic experts and frontline activists are also interviewed, including David Broder of the Washington Post, Alan Berube of the Brookings Institute, and Jessica Bartholow, a community food bank administrator. The United States continue to be the wealthiest country in the world, yet one in eight Americans--approximately 37 million people--live below the poverty line. This program analytically and sympathetically discusses the effects and implications of poverty, examining factors such as illiteracy, insufficient job skills, substance abuse, and crime. The phenomenon of multigenerational poverty is also addrressed underscoring the disturbing pattern of poverty begetting poverty. Interviews with impoverished people and those who reach out to them put a human face on a demographic group that lives below the radar of wealthy and middle-class Americans"--Container.
