There's a blog called "Freakonomics" connected to the NY Times that I
like to read. This last week, they interviewed some upper class folks
about what they would do "if the worst happened":
I was amused by the naivety of some of the comments, as if the
question isn't really serious, and that getting back on one's feet
isn't really that difficult.
Of course, they aren't in the same situation as most homeless, because
even if they lose all their economic capital, they still have social
capital, which is a much more important commodity, and the real coin
that the homeless lack.
So, what would YOU do? What if you were on the street? How would you
try to survive? What if you had no family, friends or church to help
you? Where would you go?
