poverty machine

We describe the welfare system as a whole, and the socio-political landscape it exists within, as a poverty machine. It is both the complex intersection of government policies that trap us in poverty and the people who have power to design, uphold and create social license for these policies, including politicians, researchers, bureaucrats, the media, professional advocates, charities and service providers.
