Janet Currie (Economics)

By unearthing new empirical data, Currie makes the case that social programs for families with children are remarkably effective.

“More than a decade of research has convinced me that social safety net programs generally accomplish their goals and are a crucial part of the continuing fight against poverty among children. If we truly believe that our children are our future, we must protect these programs against those who would dismantle them and move forward with reforming them to face the twenty-first century.”
