Concentrated Poverty: A Critical Analysis
To many observers, it may be almost reflexive to believe that neighborhoods with high levels of poverty naturally breed more poverty.

The result leads to policies to break up neighborhoods rather than getting to the root causes of extreme povertyânot the least of which is the unavailability of jobs.
