it was amazing
bookshelves: poverty

Wow. Picks up where Nickel and Dimed left off--a far-reaching critique of both liberal and conservative approaches to poverty reduction and a comprehensive look at the diversity of the working poor in America. If you're into Project Runway (come on, fashionista policy wonks, I know you're out there), the section on the political economy of the fashion industry is especially fresh and fascinating.
