Today, more than one out of six American children lives below the poverty line. As Madrick shows in this deeply reported study, the reality of those impoverished young lives is even more shocking than the raw numbers. Editor of Challenge magazine, author of books including Seven Bad Ideas and Age of Greed, and a former economics columnist for Harper's and The New York Times, Madrick details how living in poverty even temporarily is detrimental to children's health, cognitive abilities, and emotional control. He illuminates the roots of child poverty, which include entrenched racism and the fraying social welfare system, and proposes that, rather than treating the symptoms, we ameliorate the worst of poverty's effects by instituting an unconditional monthly cash allowance for every child in America.
