Government programs are in place to help impoverished families, orphans, the disabled and the elderly. Sometimes, though, the money from those programs doesn’t make it to the people in need. This hour, we’ll talk about how those funds are often syphoned off by local governments and private businesses – and how we can correct the problem – with University of Baltimore law professor Daniel. L. Hatcher. He writes about the topic in his book, “The Poverty Industry: The Exploitation of America’s Most Vulnerable Citizens” (NYU Press).
