John D. Sutter of CNN: Economic Inequality and Lake Providence, Louisiana


The CNN report is linked below.

CNN: Lake Providence, Lousisiana

"Since the late 1970s, the gap between rich and poor has widened to Grand Canyon proportions -- pushing America toward a two-class society. People have a harder time getting ahead now than at any time since the Great Depression.
The nation is more economically split, according to the CIA, than Iran or Nigeria.
East Carroll Parish, population 7,500 and home to Lake Providence, is worse off still."
---John D. Sutter, CNN
