Chapter Summary

This chapter describes the possibility for politics to end poverty, and the various social problems associated with poverty. The long commutes; longer than is common even in the big cities of Europe, is one important reason why Americans typically have little or no social life during the work week. There is also the need to reintroduce working-class jobs into the inner city. While people in the inner cities desperately need jobs, they for the most part neither has the means to acquire the proper skills, the encouragement to do so, nor even in many case the means to get to work.

Keywords: Americans; ecological society; poverty
