Labcast 4 - 1/8/2014 - Political Dimensions Of Poverty & The NHRebellion Walk: Daniel Weeks

50 years after President Lyndon Johnson declared War on Poverty, the number of Americans living below the poverty line remains stubbornly high. Daniel Weeks, a non-resident fellow at the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics, discusses the political dimensions of persistent poverty in America and presents solutions to overcome the systematic disenfranchisement of millions of poor people in the democratic process – including the upcoming NHRebellion walk across New Hampshire for campaign finance reform, led by E.J. Safra Center Director Lawrence Lessig.
