Description

"Inclusion in the American Dream" brings together leading scholars and policy experts on the topic of asset building, particularly as this relates to public policy. The typical American household accumulates most its assets in home equity and retirement accounts, both of which are subsidized through the tax system. But the poor, for the most part, do not participate in these asset accumulation policies. The challenge is to expand the asset-based policy structure so that everyone is included.show more
