7/23/2018

Mike discusses why telling people to just work hard, and things will get better isn’t the best way to help them out of poverty. Neither is just throwing money at them, or providing them with clothing. Being trapped in poverty is a real issue, and there are some real solutions out there that involve more than just work ethic. People in poverty often need a hand up, and not necessarily a hand out. Recommended Freakonomics Episodes: When Helping Hurts Is The American Dream Really Dead?...
