Katherine Michelmore

"The Anti-Poverty Policy that Keeps on Giving," written by Katherine Michelmore, assistant professor of public administration and international affairs, was published in theĀ Economic Self-Sufficiency Policy Research Institute (ESSPRI) blog. Michelmore examines how exposure to the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) in childhood affects subsequent educational attainment and labor market outcomes in adulthood. According to Michelmore, this long-term lens is important to policymakers who seek not only to alleviate poverty in the near-term but also to reduce the intergenerational transmission of poverty in the long-run. 10/31/18
