A Decade of Federal antipoverty programs : achievements, failures, and lessons by Robert H Haveman( Book )

14 editions published between 1977 and 2013 in English and held by 940 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains seven papers prepared for a 1975 conference which addressed the progress and setbacks experienced during the first decade of the War on Poverty. Included with each paper are two commentaries by conference discussants. The seven papers deal with issues such as the origins of the War on Poverty, its education, health, and income-maintenance programs, and its community action, legal services, and antidiscrimination policies. Some papers point out that the War on Poverty was successful. For example, it is noted that medicare and medicaid led to increases in the access of poor people to medical care services. The Community Action Program's success with increasing the political participation of blacks is yet another example of success. Also successful was the Legal Services Program. In contrast, evidence is presented that indicates that the education and training programs of the War on Poverty were not successful. Other papers, indicate that the success of the War on Poverty is inconclusive. It is noted that the new income-maintenance programs and changes in old ones did reduce the poverty gap between 1965 and 1972 substantially, but that the policies adopted were inefficient, and in some ways inequitable as well. The poverty programs discussed are not evaluated in the same way by all the authors. Similarly, there is disagreement as to why the War on Poverty originated. Finally, an overview essay which introduces the book, cites statistical evidence that substantial progress toward reducing poverty was made during the decade. As a result of this, it is speculated that the United States will shift its attention from combating poverty to the more general issue of reducing income inequality. (Author/AM)

Succeeding generations : on the effects of investments in children by Robert H Haveman( Book )

12 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If America's future depends on how well we take care of our children, then current trends point toward a bleak horizon. Teenage suicide and pregnancy rates climbed over the past two decades, while the average SAT score, despite recent improvement, remains at an abysmally low level. Succeeding Generations ascribes the precarious state of America's youth to the increasingly unstable environment in which we as a society and as parents have chosen to raise our children. Authors Robert Haveman and Barbara Wolfe present a meticulous and candid investigation that directly links fractured families, a troubled economy, rising poverty rates, and neighborhood erosion to the impaired ability of many children to lead successful and productive adult lives. Drawn from an extensive two-decade longitudinal survey of American families, Succeeding Generations traces a representative group of America's children from their early years through young adulthood. The book then evaluates the many background factors - family, social, and economic - which are most influential in determining how much education children will obtain, whether they will become teen parents, and how economically active they will be when they reach their twenties. Haveman and Wolfe pinpoint some significant causes of children's later success, emphasizing the importance of parents' education and, despite the apparent loss of time spent with children, the generally positive influence of maternal employment. Haveman and Wolfe also confirm the detrimental effects on children of the very phenomena which have increased over the past two decades: divorce, single parent families, geographic relocation, and neighborhood deterioration. Most alarming is the epidemic of the single greatest deterrent to children's future success - poverty. Today twenty percent of all American children - forty percent among minorities - grow up in poor families, more than in other Western developed countries. Succeeding Generations demonstrates how the future of America's children has been placed at risk by social and economic conditions which, if perpetuated, are almost certain to foster an intergenerational chain of failure. Arguing the need for intervention, Haveman and Wolfe supplement their research with a comprehensive review of the many debates among economists, sociologists, developmental psychologists, and other experts on how best to improve the lot of America's children. Succeeding Generations is an important assessment of the disadvantages facing today's youth, and a cornerstone upon which to strengthen the investments we make in our children
The economic impacts of tax-transfer policy : regional and distributional effects by Fredrick L Golladay( Book )

18 editions published between 1976 and 2013 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Economic Impacts of Tax-Transfer Policy: Regional and Distributional Effects deals with evaluating proposed income-transfer policies through tax modeling. The book analyzes the direct and indirect effects of two variants of a negative income tax plan. These are the standard negative income tax and the Family Assistance Plan. By studying the indirect effects of income-maintenance programs on industries, occupations, and different regions, the authors point to understanding the effectiveness of alternative income-maintenance programs. Proposed changes in national taxes and transfer policies

The work alternative : welfare reform and the realities of the job market by Demetra S Nightingale( Book )

6 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contributions to this book are based on presentations at a conference hosted by The Urban Institute in April 1994 to consider the challenges of achieving self-sufficiency for the nation's poor. Achieving long-term self-sufficiency for society's members is a fundamental social goal, but the problems involved, particularly those of finding enough well-paying jobs, are complex. Issues are explored in the following contributions: (1) "Welfare Reform: Historical Context and Current IssuesS (Demetra Smith Nightingale); (2) "Making Work Work: Welfare Reform in the 1990s" (Nathan Glazer); (3) "Outlook for the U.S. Labor Market and Prospects for Low-Wage Entry Jobs" (Rebecca M. Blank); (4) "Employment Prospects of Welfare Recipients" (Gary Burtless); (5) "Subsidized Employment and Non-Labor Market Alternatives for Welfare Recipients" (Rebecca A. Maynard); (6) "Stimulating Employment and Increasing Opportunity for the Current Work Force" (Laurie J. Bassi); (7) "Out-of-Welfare Strategies for Welfare-Bound Youth" (Hillary Pouncy and Ronald B. Mincy); and (8) "The Clinton Alternative to 'Welfare as We Know It': Is It Feasible" (Robert H. Haveman). Each chapter contains references. (Contains 17 tables and 18 figures.) (Sld)

Human capital in the United States from 1975 to 2000 : patterns of growth and utilization by Robert H Haveman( Book )

15 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this study, the authors develop an indicator of the value of human capital stock held by the nation's working-age population. They then use that indicator to assess the utilization of the nation's human capital stock overall and by a number of demographic subgroups. This serves to complement the many existing indicators that measure the U.S. economy's capital utilization
