Lot of talk….but has life gotten any better for the very impoverished? If the answer is no, that means we are either not trying or we are pursuing the wrong solutions

The number of the very poor has grown in the last 4 years.   That is terrible.  Have the very poor been abandoned?   It is politically fashionable to talk about helping them — but where is the product?   Talk and product are very different.  If we have a lousy product and growing numbers is a dismal statistic indicating we do, maybe we are not doing the right thing.   What do you think?
