A Thousand Words, Vol.1, Issue 4.

Today, we get a graphical look (link is across the jump) at the impact of inequality on poverty in the United States. Along with inequality, five other factors that affect poverty are portrayed.

Many thanks to Jared Bernstein, former Chief Economist and Economic Adviser to Vice President Joe Biden, for providing this graph on poverty. You can view the graph here.

You can read Jared's article that explains the graph by following the link in the cited article.
