Watch: CEA Chair Jason Furman on Government's Role in Fighting Poverty
This week, we hosted a speech by White House Council of Economic Advisers Chair Jason Furman on what works to fight poverty and what the poverty-fighting agenda going forward should – and should not – feature. Furman’s talk was followed by a lively panel discussion, moderated by Washington Post columnist E. J. Dionne and including Furman, Hamilton Project Director (and Northwestern University Professor) Diane Whitmore Schanzenbach, and Eric Rodriguez, Vice President, Office of Research, Advocacy, and Legislation at the National Council of La Raza.
