America is one of the best countries in the world as far as opportunity and development are concerned. Sure, the nation’s deficit as a whole is unimpressive and actually quite shocking, but the people who live here are doing fairly well for themselves. This free country allows residents to chase their dreams without anything standing in your way. In many countries across the world, this is not something that certain people have the freedom to accomplish. But just because Americans are wealthier than so many other people from so many other countries does not mean everyone here is doing well. The country has a number of cities that are very poor and we have those right here for you to see. Check out the list of poorest cities in the country to see if your city made the list.
