Display Date

  Last week, MetroTrends bloggers offered new insights on three dimensions of family economic success:

  •     Elaine Maag features a nifty new tool for understanding how taxes and public benefits (federal and state) interact to affect our paychecks.
  •     Margery Turner argues that cuts in state support for higher education may perpetuate long-standing inequalities and undermine future prosperity.
  •     Greg Mills recaps the evidence on the pros and cons of helping poor families by encouraging them to save more.
