The official poverty rate in 2009 was 14.3 percent — up from 13.2 percent in 2008. This was the second statistically significant annual increase in the poverty rate since 2004.
In 2009, 43.6 million people were in poverty, up from 39.8 million in 2008 — the third consecutive annual increase in the number of people in poverty.
Between 2008 and 2009, the poverty rate increased for non-Hispanic Whites (from 8.6 percent to 9.4 percent), for Blacks (from 24.7 percent to 25.8 percent), and for Hispanics (from 23.2 percent to 25.3 percent). These are official stats from the US Census Bureau. What I find interesting is that so many people rant about Ministers who teach biblical economics (Prosperity) while at the same complain about the economic gap in the nation.
QUESTION. Would you rather hear a “Prosperity” Preacher or Poverty Preacher. The Choice is YOURS. Let’s talk about it.
