Hardly Anyone Wants to Admit America Is Beating Poverty - WSJ, Bruce D. Meyer and James X. Sullivan , Aug 2018
"poverty has declined significantly over the past 50 years, but neither side has recognized the major progress that has been made."

"Instead of focusing on reported incomes, our work measures poverty based on consumption: what food, housing, transportation and other goods and services people are able to purchase. This approach, which captures the effect of noncash programs and accounts for the known bias in the CPI-U, demonstrates clearly that there is much less material deprivation than there was decades ago. "

Don’t Clam Up When Life Brings You Down
Why do we of­ten feel the need to pre­tend our lives are bet­ter than they re­ally are? When you’re fight­ing to keep your­self go­ing, some­times what can help is a proper, out-loud ac­count­ing of what you’re go­ing through. Ad­mit­ting that your life is not ex­actly the Coun­try Fair Jam­boree may be the first step to get­ting it there.

At a low point in my life, when it was a chore just try­ing to keep out of bed, I ven­tured into a bar that I knew wasn’t very pop­u­lar. There I sat down in front of a bar­tender who turned out to be ex­actly my age.

I as­sumed he was do­ing bet­ter than I was, so when we started talk­ing, I scarcely went into my trou­bles. But he, too, was in a trough of one of life’s waves. With­out hes­i­ta­tion, he told me that he was col­lect­ing un­em­ploy­ment, his hours at the bar were few, and he couldn’t find work in his ac­tual pro­fes­sion.

That bar­tender be­came my friend. I re­spected his can­dor, which made it eas­ier for me to share my own prob­lems. When he first told me that he was push­ing 40 and un­able to find work, he didn’t come across as frag­ile. In­stead my thought was: “This guy is im­pres-sive. He’s solid in his be­lief about him­self. He has a prob­lem to deal with, and he knows there’s no point in try­ing to save face by pre­tend­ing it’s not there.”

How The Wall Street Journal is revamping its newsletters — and trying to add some whimsy » Nieman Journalism Lab
Inviting readers to share their thoughts in a two-way exchange isn’t a new concept either, but not many publishers’ newsletters actually allow subscribers to easily contact their writers. Now, all migrated newsletters have a designated Journal editor in the reply-to field, and Dooling has been helping editors get the hang of managing the responses. “I’ve got 12 years of community managing experience. I always get questions about commenting platforms and that sort of thing, but it’s interesting how you can build community so much into email,” she said.
