Poverty and Economic Inequality
Although millions of Americans live below the poverty line, economic inequality is still a frequently misunderstood issue. Myths about poverty that have been thoroughly debunked are still commonly circulated, and this type of misunderstanding leads to poor communication and tension between people of different economic classes. The goal of this volume is to reduce that misunderstanding and present readers with the facts and realities of economic inequality. In-depth sidebars, full-color photographs, and educational graphs present essential information about this complex issue. Annotated quotes are also included to provide first-person perspectives to deepen readers' critical thinking skills.
