One reply on “How Expensive It Is to Be Poor – NYTimes.com”

I wanted to add some things.

For instance, a VAT tax her in ph of 12%

rich buys something, they pay 12% and it’s small part of their salary

poor buys something when they can afford, it’s large part of their salary

poor can’t and don’t plan, always focused on today…

the blue meme, if not born in, can’t attach…like it does in other people who have scaffolding…sacrifice now to get later is not possible when you live your life as an emergency

poor are usually not educated in anything financial, they don’t understand math…

do you realize that poor mothers actually deprive their children of having math ability by not having appropriate supplementation during the first few weeks of pregnancy, new british study found…

it’s not enough to give money and if you buy into the blank slate idea, then you BLAME the poor for being poor, and lazy and ne’er do well’s and all other sorts of things that are projected onto them from successful people who are scaffolded well…

my mother used to say her boss always said…”it takes a lot more to get a pot boiling, than it does to keep it boiling…”

the poor never get much boiling because the ramp up is too long, costly and not supported

over the past 5 years, I’ve lived with the super poor and its only now beginning to sink in that it takes a village and a lot more to help break generational poverty…

and yes, some people are born without ambition…without neurosis, where one decision when they are young, such as pregnancy, or not being able to go to school scaffolds poverty for life…

people should not have to be poor because something happened to them…a single event, or source of problems leaves them in poverty their whole lives…

a great society would start to peel away the blank slate veneer and require that all people be scaffolded past their intelligence…
