Fighting poverty revisited: What did researchers know 40 years ago? What do we know today?

Publication Abstract

Danziger, Sheldon H. 2007. "Fighting poverty revisited: What did researchers know 40 years ago? What do we know today?" Focus: Institute for Research on Poverty, 25(1): 3-11.

In the mid-1960s, the first generation of poverty researchers, primarily economists associated with the President’s Council of Economic Advisers, articulated the elimination of income poverty as a national goal. In this paper, I review what they knew then about the economics of poverty compared to what we know today.
