BROKE IN AMERICA Seeing, Understanding, and Ending U.S. Poverty

by | Read by Joanne Samuel Goldblum, Colleen Shaddox, JD Jackson

Contemporary Culture • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

This listen will educate--and infuriate. The authors and JD Jackson describe how poverty could be eradicated and why it hasn't been. Listeners get explanations on why bad policy, not personal failure, lies at the root of poverty. Jackson conveys just the right amount of exasperation, frustration, and understanding to make this a compelling listen. It's never preachy or academic. Instead, it explains how we got to the current 40% of the population not having access to water, food, or housing. The authors share stories of people who are broke and explain away the myth of "pulling oneself up by one's bootstraps." Solutions are offered that national and local governments can implement to make life better for those who are broke. J.P.S. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2021]
