    Hi Raúl, here is a very interesting article that you may have already linked to but just in case:

    Why Poverty Is Like a Disease
    Emerging science is putting the lie to American meritocracy.

    The science of the biological effects of the stresses of poverty is in its early stages. Still, it has presented us with multiple mechanisms through which such effects could happen, and many of these admit an inheritable component. If a pregnant woman, for example, is exposed to the stresses of poverty, her fetus and that fetus’ gametes can both be affected, extending the effects of poverty to at least her grandchildren. And it could go further.


    Thank you pocoloco. Very interesting link. My only contention is that poverty is only one type long-term stress – there are others.


    Since maps are back in fashion, here is another interesting one:

    This referendum map of Turkey should have all of the world a bit concerned


    Poverty is usually defined in terms of an insufficiency of tokens, i.e. dollars annual income. The Automatic Earth eloquently argues such definitions evanescent and fated to vanish when our financial empire implodes. Perhaps hopelessness and inability to affect one’s environment would be a better way to define poverty. Jesus and Gandhi eschewed pursuit of tokens. Let the fetuses figure that one out.
