Spencer was wrong.   Poverty is not a feature of national economies, but rather a bug.   America has a long tradition of economic policies that serve the nation poorly by favoring capital over labor.   Only when we come to realize that poverty is not inevitable can we enact policies that will eradicate it.  

A logical starting point is to eliminate favors that have been given for the formation of capital -- corporate welfare -- and to eliminate penalties against the employment of labor.  Both have long existed within the US tax structure and elsewhere in law and policy.   A more practical and immediate starting point might be to restore the power of American voters through election finance reform and reversal of Citizens United.   Perhaps the very best starting point would be to turn off Fox News and step away from the television.
