April 19, 2017

Work by Professor Anna Aizer was cited in an article in the New York Times published on April 15, 2017. In his article, "Supply Side Economics, but for Liberals," Neil Irwin argues that certain social welfare programs "may actually encourage more people to work and enable them to do so more productively." He cites work by Aizer and co-authors estimating the long term impact of welfare receipt in childhood on educational attainment, income in adulthood and mortality.
