Wealth, Poverty, and the Role of Politics by The Elephant's Child

Hoover Institution fellow Thomas Sowell discusses poverty around the world and in the United States. Poverty in America, he says, is not severe, compared to the rest of the world. Many of the poor in the United States have one or two cars, central heating and cell phones.

The real problem for the poor is the destruction of the family, which Dr, Sowell argues dramatically increased once Great Society welfare policies were introduced in the 1960s.

“The World Has Never Been a Level Playing Field.”
