Poverty is a relentless problem in America, and the current panoply of government programs designed to alleviate it are not working. Ending Poverty presents a new approach to government policy, one that is capable of eliminating preventable povertywithin the foreseeable future. This book proposes an aggressive, conservative, governmental reform plan that is institutionalized through an income contract between the individual and the government and will guarantee adequate income for all who participate. Based on three main principles--government policy is more effective when it channels market forces than when it overrides them, individuals should have more control over the resources that government spends on their behalf, and access to a decent life free of poverty should be seen as a conditional right in American society--the book sets out reform guidelines for education, health care, housing, retirement savings, and taxation.
