Abstract: Of course, not all of the problems facing low-income Americans will be solved by federal antipoverty programs. But many of these assistance programs do reduce poverty and, with thoughtful reform, could be even more effective in helping struggling Americans move up. This volume intends to help policymakers understand how each program functions—its strengths, as well as its weaknesses.
