Welfare reform wasn't just about 90s boom--the feared increase in poverty never came, and the waiver experiments in early 90s succeeded too
...but I don't get how anyone who *was* around and engaged in policy back then can be confident they know what will help & hurt poor.
I get how younger folks can confidently assert what impact of pro-work poverty reform will be on the poor--they weren't around in 1996...
.@saragoldrickrab I encourage you and others to read the Ryan War on Poverty report with an open mind--it's an invaluable resource
@saragoldrickrab I like Jane, and Chris W is one of my best friends, but their criticisms are hardly scandalous. Ryan folks fixed Wolfe prob
@saragoldrickrab But folks (you included) aren't being fair about the report. See, e.g., http://t.co/5YJ8hpuiHb (not written by me)
@saragoldrickrab Look, I've talked to Ryan and staff. We agree on lots disagree on some. I'm glad 2 advise them, but hardly most influential
.@saragoldrickrab That was every bit as gracious as I expected.
.@saragoldrickrab that’s a no. I’ll eagerly await your gracious apology.
.@saragoldrickrab not sure what you’re on about, sorry
If analyses support intro chapter of Clark’s Son Also Rises, which just finished, prob most important soc sci book in at least 20 yrs
Clark cites, among many others, conversations with & feedback from Gary Solon, Bowles & Gintis, Joe Ferrie—mobility bigwigs
But says initial results led him 2 believe mobility is high, & forced 2 admit sociologists might b onto something w concept of social class
1st words of Clark’s preface 2 Son Also Rises: “This book will be controversial.” Admits thesis “based on incomplete evidence” & may b wrong
RT @realclearpolicy: .@ManhattanInst's @swinshi lists five reasons why mobility has changed little, given the growth in inequalities: http://t.co/Z8j0XQ4Vkg
