CNN: Are you poor if you own a flat-screen TV? or don't own a computer ?

CNN asks Are you poor if you own a flat screen TV. Are you poor if you don't own a computer ? The story has a somewhat provocative headline but at least discuss poverty. The article basically makes the point that poverty includes a basic but changing list of material goods.

We would argue the material list will soon be satisfied and the definition will be expanded to include health care, safe neighborhoods and a good education.
