Departure to poverty understanding

This is sort of a departure from my normal theme on this blog, and I don't have a lot of time to go into why it's important to read it, but here's a link to a well written article on the topic of poor mentality. Lots of people study what's going on with poverty stuck folks but it really isn't rocket science--the most affluent country in the world has a giant back eddy when it comes to opportunity. We don't teach how to be wealthy in public schools and a mindset of apathy is preached in certain communities. It doesn't have to be this way, but throwing money whether government program or private charity only puts a band aid on the cancer patient. We need a system alteration that allows people a path to prosperity and if any nation on earth can do this, America is it. It starts with education but it'll take some shifts in mindset among the rich as well as the poor.

This article doesn't supply those answers, but it's a good way to familiarize yourself with the problem.
