crisis: at what cost?

There are many ways of looking at things, beginning from the analysis & ending to the resulting narration. Usually, narration is supposed to support the reality. When the narration replaces reality, there can be problems.
Generally speaking, the literature remind us that there is a specific condition that develops when the difference between the narration & the reality, ends up in a problem of reality that does not conform to the narrative. This mode is generally called schizophrenia. 
Maybe because of my job, I think it's quite dangerous to accompany a population towards this mode, as it is happening in my country.
Regardless to the delicacy of issues such unemployment, poverty, housing rights, inclusion, protection of minors and people with disabilities ... in each of these spheres, the official messages offer to the general public continuous examples of  narrations that do not stand up to reality. 
As far as I can, I suggest some researches, analysis & methods, where reality is the starting point to develop need-analysis, methods & praxis, whose impacts are real solutions, & not just vain bla-bla talks. 
After some documentations on deafness & hearing loss (which I will continue to post), here it is a research developed by the University of York & Crisis UK that provides important data. During an extensive case-study analysis of situations of people in extreme poverty in the UK, the focus has been pointed to highlighten the economic dimension, as well as the human & social. 
The data shows that a practical and resolute intervention represents a saving between 3 & 18 thousands pounds per person. 
Yes, right ... a saving ! ... quite different from what people get usually told ...
It is important to take some minutes to check these data & the No One Turned Away Campaign.
Here is to Download the report "at what cost?"
