Abstract

Becky Blank has presented a valuable meditation on the nature of poverty. She offers the voice of genuinely caring economist. The notion of a “caring economist” was not an oxymoron for me, at least not when I first came to economics as an undergraduate at Brown University in 1970. I have grown more cynical over the years, which makes me even more appreciative of the sentiment and ethics implied in the title of Professor Blank’s talk.
