Poverty is much more than a lack of money. Poverty can be seen from a definition of “the extent to which an individual does without resources”
Key truths about poverty: Poverty is systemic. The mental model of poverty is different than middle class and wealthy class. Power systems between economic class are different and unequal. Poverty is on a continuum, not a definitive line. Generational poverty and situational poverty are fundamentally different. People usually bring with them the power structure, motivation and hidden rules of the class system they were raised in.
