Government Against Poverty. Studies in Social Economics, Number 7.
Kershaw, Joseph A.
In tracing the history and purposes of domestic antipoverty programs, this study seeks to explain why the problem of poverty in America is still unsolved. The analysis of past performance and proposals for the future are based on a combination of cost-benefit analysis of specific programs and general economic analysis of the problems of domestic poverty. The author concludes that despite some early successes, antipoverty programs have been stymied by inadequate federal support. (Author/DM)
