NYC tries throwing money at the poor
Millionaire Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg is attemptimg an "ambitioius experiment that will pay poor families up to $5,000 a year to meet goals" to lift them up out of poverty. "Some antipoverty advocates have bristled at what they see as the condescending notion that poor people need to be told how to raise their families. Others have focused on the broader economic issues at play."
