Reducing Poverty and Restoring the American Dream
February 9 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
The American Enterprise Institute and the Brookings Institute released “A Consensus Plan for Reducing Poverty and Restoring the American Dream.” The PPE Program is hosting a one day intensive seminar, with two of the co-authors, Robert Doar (AEI) and Richard Reeves (Brookings), and with William Darity Jr. (Duke) — for students, faculty, and members of the broader community. In the spirit of the consensus report, this event is not a debate nor an exchange of sound bites, but an intensive exploration and discussion of the prospects for effectively reducing poverty in the US.
