The Social Safety Net as an Investment -- Goldman Stories: Hilary Hoynes

11/12/2020; 7 minutes

More than one in ten children in the United States live in poverty. There are two main programs aimed at helping them and their families: the earned income tax credit, and food stamps. Hilary Hoynes studies these programs and other aspects of the social safety net at UC Berkeley's Goldman School of Public Policy. She has gone through decades of research to find that these programs act as an investment, improving the lives of the children who benefit from them for decades to come. Recorded on 01/29/2020.
