Quote of the Day: So perhaps social spending is not really about fixing poverty?




"An alien beamed down to Earth might be forgiven for thinking that we are in the midst of some sort of a catastrophe... It makes no sense that social spending [above] has been increasing alongside rising incomes [below]."
~ Marian Tupy, in his article at the Human Progress website, 'What does it mean to be poor today?'
