I’m speaking for myself when I say financial insecurity is a very serious problem and it’s pervasive in this country. We want to have a country full of confident people. As opposed to a bunch of overworked dollar chasers unsure how they’re going to meet their basic needs. If you study Maslow’s Hierarchy for a brief moment, you’ll notice that well being is highly contingent on the economy and the distribution of wealth. Too many Americans are at the bottom levels of that hierarchy.
So that’s how I view the underlying problems this country has – in a nutshell.
