Can any of you think of any other of major sources of poverty since 1960? Credit cards? Anything...

The breakdown of the family stands at the head of the poverty cycle. Children of single parents are many times more likely to be brought up in poverty than the offspring of functional families.

Failure to obtain education, training, or skills is a certain route to a impoverished life. I have a daughter who is a pharmacist. The day she graduated, Wal-Mart kicked her 26 K wage up over 50K. Two months later, the very day she passed her Registry they made her a manager at a six figure salary. This from Wal-Mart, which has been called "vicious and predatory." OTOH I have a niece who dropped out of high school and gave birth to a child out of wedlock. Guess which one will live a life of poverty?

And no, I do not blame corporate America. If Wal-Mart paid their door greeters six figures, they'd be bankrupt in less than a year!

All in all, I'd say the root cause of poverty in most cases is a failure to accept responsibility for our actions.
