Poverty in America.

A free lesson on how to escape poverty. Economist Charles Murray author of the book Losing Ground, offers a formula on how to escape poverty in America. Here's his prescription: "The requirements for a male, black or white, are to go to free public school and to complete high school, get into the labor market and get a job, any job, and stick with the labor market. Do this and it is almost impossible to stay poor because among adult American males of all races with just a high school education, 91% now have family incomes greater than twice the poverty level."
