I was glad to see that young think tankers at the Roosevelt Institution‘s recent Policy Expo were talking about individual development accounts and other asset development tools.
Newish blogger Niko Karvounis, a Senior Fellow at Roosevelt, addresses one of the big questions people ask about IDAs: if you’re poor, doesn’t it mean you don’t have any money to save? I like the way he answers it.
Karvounis looks like an excellent addition to the social policy blogosphere. You’ll be hearing more from him.
