The Effects of Family Breakdown on Poverty
Session Date and Time
Monday, August 16, 2021, 7:00:00 PM UTC
Contrary to popular belief the greatest contributor to poverty is not lack of education but the breakdown of the family. Data suggest that the quickest way to prosperity is for a man and a woman to get married. The married man tends to make more money over the course of their life than the single man.
