The Big Question of the Week: Are these poverty myths really myths?

At the end of each episode I pose a question to you, the listening audience. This question, aptly titled “The Big Question of the Week” is your chance to interact with The Sector by commenting, answering, or offering your two cents on the Big Question. You can participate on FacebookTwitter, or by emailing in or even just commenting on this post.
