An Interview With Author Of 'The Undeserving Poor'
In 1989 Michael Katz wrote the first edition of The Undeserving Poor and changed the way we talk about and understand poverty. He directly addressed the question of who is responsible for the victims of poverty.
His recently revised second edition came out last month, numerous aspects of poverty have completely changed, while others have persisted and some have even expanded over the last two decades.
On Wednesday's Central Standard, we talk with Michael Katz about his work and some of the deepest challenges regarding poverty.
