A Safety Net That Works : Improving Federal Programs for Low-Income Americans Hardback

Edited by Robert Doar



This is an edited volume reviewing the major means-tested social programs in the United States.

Each author addresses a major program or area, reviewing each area's successes and recommending how to address shortcomings through policy change.

In general, our means-tested programs do many things well, but some adjustments to each could make the system much more effective.

This book provides policymakers with a broad overview of the issues at hand in each program and how to address them. Contributions by Douglas J. Besharov, Richard V. Burkhauser, Douglass M. Call, James C. Capretta, Kevin C. Corinth, Maura Corrigan, Mary C. Daly, Robert Doar, Ron Haskins, Bruce D. Meyer, Edgar O. Olsen, Angela Rachidi, Katharine B. Stevens, and Russell Sykes.
