"What if the dominant discourse on poverty is just wrong? What if the
problem isn’t that poor people have bad morals – that they’re lazy and
impulsive and irresponsible and have no family values – or that they
lack the skills and smarts to fit in with our shiny 21st-century
economy? What if the problem is that poverty is profitable?"
