Policy Focus: Public Policy Should Reward Work, Not Compete With It
Carrie Sheffield joins the podcast to discuss this month’s policy focus: Public Policy Should Reward Work, Not Compete With It. We focus on the reasons why work is a vital component of fighting poverty and why policymakers should avoid using COVID-19 emergency tools to create permanent policies that are magnets for fraud and risk-triggering inflation.
