KNPR'S STATE OF NEVADA -- Poverty seems to be an endemic problem. Every society has apparently had impoverished people but we set about eradicating that problem in the Great Society. But it remains a serious problem. Why? Are we following the wrong policies? Are we unwilling to change? Or is poverty simply inevitable. We talk with a panel of experts who say that we need stronger help for the poor as well as those who say that those programs have already proven complete failures. Where do you stand on helping the poor?

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
