Low-income families have scant savings to cushion a job loss or illness, and can find economic mobility impossible without funds to invest in education, homes, or businesses. And though a lack of resources leaves such families vulnerable, income-support programs are often closed to those with a bit of savings or even a car. Considering welfare-to-work reforms, the increasingly advanced skill demands of the American workforce, and our stretched Social Security system, such an approach is inadequate to lift families out of poverty. Asset-based policies—allowing or even helping low-income families build wealth—are an increasingly popular strategy to facilitate financial stability.

About the Author:

Michael Sherraden is the Benjamin E. Youngdahl Professor of Social Development and director of the Center for Social Development, George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis.

Review:

We have always understood that the real antipoverty and growth strategy is to build up peoples assets, their financial capital, knowledge, and ability to discern. But then, few of our policies get directed that way. Signe-Mary McKernan and Michael Sherraden are two of the nations leaders in asset policy and research, and their judgment and wisdom, as well as that of the coauthors they have recruited, are shown in this outstanding volume. It details honestly and in depth both what we know and, as importantly, what we do not know about how assets are accumulated by low and moderate income families. --C. Eugene Steuerle, Vice President, the Peter G. Peterson Foundation
