Poverty Is Obvious, The Solutions Are Not


Stephen Pimpare has written the definitive book on poverty in America. He believes that Statist solutions are the key to solving these problems. We had a healthy debate on the role of food stamps in America today. He believes that they stimulate the economy and should be more widely distributed, while your host believes otherwise. Mr. Pimpare feels that the decline in the standard of living of the average American worker has come about due to international competitive factors while your host believes that it was due largely from debasement of the currency, the Great Society, the Vietnam War and expanding government. The debate was heated and passionate at times but always respectful, which is the way it should be on the Financial Survival Network.
