NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- There is poverty, and then there is extreme poverty. People talk about the "New Normal," where the economy is growing at a lower rate, the stock market is barely changing, etc.Even if we assume that the U.S. GDP per capita grows at a respectable 2% per year, it would take more than 35 years to double the incomes of U.S. households. Even in this scenario, where the incomes of every single person in this country doubles, there will still be widespread poverty in all corners of this country.
