Imagine you have been asked to serve as a consultant for a committee charged with addressing economic inequality and poverty in America. You are being asked to review the Moynihan Report and consider whether or not the problems identified are relevant today, and whether the report can be useful for understanding poverty not only among African Americans, but other groups as well.

Write a 5-7 page essay which accomplishes this following:



1.     
Briefly describe Moynihan’s core arguments about the underlying causes of poverty among African Americans.

2.     
Discuss whether or not the social circumstances that Moynihan describes still exist today.  What, if anything, has changed?  What has stayed the same?  Are there any other groups to which his arguments might apply?

3.     
Discuss at least one other theory or study of economic inequality that we have discussed in class, or that you learn about from additional sources. Compare and/or contrast it to the Moynihan Report.

4.     
Based on your research, propose a very brief plan (1 paragraph), for alleviating poverty in the U.S. today.

 

This is a research paper.  You must site at least three academic sources, including the Moynihan Report itself.
