Please join us on Monday, April 8, for a special discussion of Michael Tanner’s newly published book, The Inclusive Economy: How to Bring Wealth to America’s Poor. In it, Tanner sets aside the traditional conservative and liberal responses to poverty and explores a fresh approach to this persistent problem. The result is a compelling blend of social justice and limited government. Following Tanner’s presentation, Cato research fellow and director of polling Emily Ekins will discuss her ongoing research on Americans’ attitudes toward welfare policy, poverty, and work.

Attendees will have access to copies of The Inclusive Economy and an opportunity to discuss the issue of poverty and poverty programs with our distinguished panelists during and immediately after the event. To attend, please register by noon on Friday, April 5.
