Policies Don’t Take Into Account Real Face of Poverty

Brookings Institution

Elizabeth Kneebone, a fellow of the Metropolitan Policy Program at the Brookings Institution writes that anti-poverty policy doesn’t taken into account that the number of people who are poor in the suburbs increased by 64 percent between ’00 and ’11. That’s twice the increase of people in the cities.

That means that place-based anti-poverty programs aren’t sufficient to meet the changing demographics of poverty, writes Kneebone.
