How do we approach the longstanding, sometimes ideologically divided issue of poverty?
How do we inform consequential choices about the well-being of people in the U.S.?
Who helps to shape decisions and offer solutions for economic and social policy?
And is poverty even a solvable issue?
Dr. Elaine Waxman says yes.
She is a senior fellow in the Income and Benefits Policy Center at the Urban Institute, a nonprofit research organization that believes decisions shaped by facts, rather than ideology, have the power to improve public policy and practice, strengthen communities, and transform people’s lives for the better.
Dr. Waxman is on the show today to help us better understand the state of poverty in the U.S., what this means for families and the strategies that point to a way out.
