From Hillary Clinton proclaiming that “the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top” and saying that she wants to be “that champion” for “every day Americans” to Gwyneth Paltrow’s pledge to eat on $29 for the week, per the #FoodBankNYCChallenge in response to what America’s SNAP (food stamp) families have to live on, it seems that East Enders are embracing the art of frugality.
I’m curious. Will these acts of the privileged class, such as those of the newest Presidential contender and of the Goop luxe lifestyle website founder, draw positive attention and impact to the plight of poverty? Or will they backfire badly? What do you think?
