Is Poverty an ACE?

I think toxic stress can result from poverty, and this is concerning considering:  40% of Americans Lack Savings to Cover a $400 Emergency.  Despite low unemployment, this Washington Post story notes that 'an alarming number of Americans are still struggling to get by. In the past month, two reports - a new Federal Reserve survey of more than 12,200 Americans about their finances and a new United Way report on financial hardship - reveal how unstable life remains for a large number of people.

Do you agree poverty is an ACE?
