9780896331525: Points of Light: New Approaches to Ending Welfare Dependency

In the 1980s as the culture of poverty evolved into an intractable and often inherited condition for many people, new ways of encouraging self-sufficiency emerged. The ten essays in this anthology survey a variety of approaches and programs. Among the authors are Charles Murray, Ken Auletta, Gertrude Himmelfarb, Lawrence Mead, Nicholas Lemann, and William Raspberry.

Review:

Searching thoughts about self-respect and independence. The common thread is that government cannot be a substitute for the family, church, and civic organizations in promoting the values and attitudes that produce a whole person. (Walter Williams, George Mason University)

The new vision of how best to help the poor declares that the only defensible objective of government effort on behalf of the needy is to bring an end to their need for support. That this is a feasible goal for public policy is amply demonstrated in this excellent collection. (Glenn Loury, Harvard University.)
