Why Dale Hanson Bourke is Not Poor

Dale Hanson Bourke has an insightful article on Christianity Today’s site: Why I am Not Poor. She is the president of her own marketing firm and and a member of the World Vision board of directors. In her analysis, the reasons include:

  • Access to good education
  • Health
  • Law / culture that protects women
  • Insurance against disaster
  • Political stability
  • Access to capital / ability to save
  • Growing economy
  • Accident of birth into middle class suburbia

A very interesting list. For most people, I would add family integrity and stability as a factor that contributes to financial suffienciency.
