$2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America

Publication Abstract

Edin, Kathryn, and H. Luke Shaefer. 2015. $2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America. Boston: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

Mixing policy research and personal narratives, the authors illuminate troubling trends: a low-wage labor market that increasingly fails to deliver a living wage, and a growing but hidden landscape of survival strategies among America's extreme poor. They offer new evidence and new ideas to add to our national debate on income inequality.
