Quote of the Day: “…effectively fighting poverty needs to start from the recognition that the economy as a whole is no longer producing a sufficient number of sustaining jobs”

"…effectively fighting poverty needs to start from the recognition that the economy as a whole is no longer producing a sufficient number of sustaining jobs; that poverty is no longer on the fringes, but is baked into the system. The private sector has a significant responsibility for creating that situation, in part in the manner in which it has influenced public policy and in part because of larger forces like technological change and globalization; and it must be a participant in moving us out of it."- Ellen Seidman
