(iii) And finally, the pervasiveness of norms and attitudes in American society that stigmatize the poor and the homeless tend to exacerbate the problem. The notions of liberal individualism and of a historical American "work ethic" which pervade American society often place the homeless on both the physical and conceptual outskirts of society. The wide-spread acceptance of the neo-classical economic paradigm in the American politico-economic sphere, the increasing centrism among political elites, and the proliferation of ideas like those of Charles Murray, signal that American society is moving farther away from the community-oriented paradigms of the 1 960s towards much more of an "each man for himself' attitude. This does not bode well for the future of poverty and homelessness in America. Indeed, it appears as though this trend will only further exacerbate this already critically pressing societal problem.
