    Default How to think about Poverty

    Here are Four questions I would like answered:


    1) Does the United States have a significant level of physical poverty?

    By "physical poverty" I mean people who cannot afford adequate food or shelter as judged on a nutritional or health basis. The more common problem of "feeling poor" is of less interest to me.

    2) Are the existing anti-poverty programs cost effective?


    3) If (1) and (2) = Yes, how much would the programs have to be expanded to end most of the physical poverty?

    4) If (1) = yes, but (2) = no, what kind of program would be cost effective, and how much would it cost reduce the number of people in poverty by 80% ?
