At this event, Michael Tanner, Senior Fellow from the CATO Institute, will discuss ideas from his new book, The Inclusive Economy: How to Bring Wealth to America’s Poor. In it, Tanner addresses five critical areas: criminal justice reform, education, housing, savings and financial inclusion, and regressive regulations that prevent low-income Americans from being able to fully participate in the nation’s economic growth. Ignoring the traditional conservative and liberal antipoverty debate, Tanner intertwines social justice with limited government to create a set of fresh and effective solutions to poverty.
At the Cato Institute, Senior Fellow Michael Tanner heads research into a variety of domestic policies, with an emphasis on poverty and social welfare policy, health care, and Social Security and entitlement reform. His writings have appeared in nearly every major American newspaper. He writes a weekly column for National Review Online, is a contributing columnist with the New York Post, and he appears regularly on network and cable news programs.
This event will be co-sponsored by the Center for Politics and the People and Young Americans for Freedom.
