The Public Square - Who is Really Giving?
So who gives more in America—rich people or
the working poor?
Arthur Brooks is a college professor at
Syracuse. He wrote a book titled “Who Really Cares?” The book is an
exhaustive study of who really gives to charity in America.
We had the chance to talk to Dr. Brooks
about his book and his studies.
What a fascinating conversation
This man truly knows what is happening in America. His work has become the
subject of several major media reports including a special report on ABC
Dr. Brooks found out that people in America
who work for a living, even the most modest living, are the most generous
Americans by far. He discovered Americans are by far the most giving people
in the world. And he discovered that people who go to church give a lot more
than people who don’t.
Now giving doesn’t make you a better person
than someone who doesn’t give. But it does make you happier. That’s what the
extensive research proves.
