CPC Fellow Glen Elder appears in NY Times, Washington Post

Mar 10, 2009

Two articles recently published in the New York Times and the Washington Post quote CPC Fellow Glen Elder on the effects of economic recessions on children. Elder discusses his research on children growing up during the Great Depression.

'The older children were better able to understand the hardships, and to get outside the household to help the family earn. They went off to World War II and benefited from the structure of the military, then returned to the booming economy and the G. I. Bill. Ultimately, Professor Elder said in an interview, "they came out with an ability to know how to survive and make do and solve problems."" (Zernike, K. (2009). Generation OMG, New York Times (March 8, 2009 ed.). New York.)
