Poverty, By America by Matthew Desmond
In Poverty, By America Matthew Desmond explains in easy to understand language how so many of America’s policies keep people in poverty, how and why money earmarked for the poor doesn’t reach them, and why having so many living in poverty is a problem for all of us. He gives some ideas on how to work toward the goal of abolishing poverty which is very motivating, though there are so many changes that need to be made and so many ways to go about it that it is kind of paralyzing as well. Fully half of the book is notes and index. The research that went into writing it is impressive. I very highly recommend this book to every American in their late teens and up.
