About ThisWayUp2016: NEW THINKING ON POVERTY AND ECONOMIC MOBILITY
The challenge looks more pressing than ever in the light of this year’s presidential campaign: how to ensure economic mobility for all Americans – poor people trapped in safety-net programs that relieve material hardship but don’t help them escape from poverty and a neglected middle class struggling to keep up with globalization. A wealth of new thinking is percolating in Washington and beyond the Beltway, where people close to the problem are coming up with better ideas that look beyond government and harness the power of communities.
A Washington summit on poverty and economic mobility will bring together policymakers and practitioners: Washington-based reform conservatives, heartland social entrepreneurs and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, a leading champion of the new approach.
