MSNBC anchor and NBC correspondent Stephanie Ruhle moderated a discussion on "Poverty: Solutions for the Unsolvable Problem," at the fifth annual Town & CountryPhilanthropy Summit. Ruhle was joined by Chris Hughes, the co-chair of the Economic Security Project and the co-founder of Facebook, along with Wes Moore, the CEO of Robin Hood.
