We all have seen the Manhattan’s fantastic skyline, the White House, the Historic Route 66 and the Hollywood studies. We all know a lot of things about this America which is the foremost economic power in the world. But there is another America – the one of 1.5 million homeless children, the one of 50 million people who don’t have health insurance and the one of 47 million Americans currently living below the poverty line. Poor America is a fantastic BBC Panorama documentary about economic inequality and the lack of social mobility in the contemporary United States. It starts in Las Vegas, the capital of capitalism. We really liked this documentary. Enjoy it are share with us your impressions!
