Overall, the typical American defined as poor by the government has a car, air
conditioning, a refrigerator, a stove, a clothes washer and dryer, and a
microwave. He has two color televisions, cable or satellite TV reception, a VCR
or DVD player, and a stereo. He is able to obtain medical care. His home is in
good repair and is not overcrowded. By his own report, his family is not hungry
and he had sufficient funds in the past year to meet his family's essential
needs. While this individual's life is not opulent, it is equally far from the
