Today is Blog Action Day, and the theme is poverty. It seems especially appropriate since over 60% of American’s believe we are heading into a depression. The depression was an economic time that most of us only know from history books and references in depressing films.
But as much as the depression should scare us, it’s the idea of not moving forward with important issues is what I really fear. Would a sudden influx of poverty stop us from moving in a positive direction? Issues like universal health care, and ending wars take on a new sense of urgency when dealing with millions of new additions to the lower class.
I thought instead of writing a new blog post, I would like to some of my previous posts about financial issues and poverty. I hope they’re useful.
