Poverty and inequality continue to be a major problem in New York City and the nation. Last year Occupy Wall Street did a great deal to focus attention on these and related issues, and the Affordable Care Act will reduce the numbers without health insurance. Yet poverty and inequality are far from being adequately addressed.
