Smart Social Programs

May 11, 2015

Anna Aizer, Associate Professor of Economics and Public Policy, co-authored a paper, "The Long Term Impact of  Cash Transfers to Poor Families" that was cited in an opinion piece in the New York Times. Opinion writer Jason Furman uses Aizer's research to make the case that rather than increasing dependency, cash-transfer programs to help the poor have "substantial long term benefits for children."
