The rich get richer

The above article discerns that the your economic head-start is a key determinant in economic viability for individuals.  As we the church attempt to address the widening economic gap in our own country and other countries around the world, we might want to begin looking at the systemic issues that are causing the gap to widen.  As I have stated before, there is a great need for immediate care of food, clothing, and shelter. But that is only the beginning of the solution.  The other side of the equation is helping break the cycle which, in my opinion, is grounded in but not limited to education, micro-credit lending, and mentoring.
