Default Re: Communitas: Rethinking Scarcity (Glenn Loury & Sendhil Mullainathan)

How much did you pay for that metaphor? At that price, are your quality expectations reasonable?

It was not such much metaphor as an illustration of alternative approaches to harm reduction. Glenn raised the poor single mom issue. Communities where that is the normal family structure are worse off by many measures than before the Great Society. As Glenn said, it's the difference between 24 and 48 hours a day, or what I'd call standing in the snowbank. Are intentions to help people all that matters? Or are results important too?
