In this podcast, economist Steven Durlauf of the University of Wisconsin–Madison (edit: Durlauf is now at the University of Chicago) discusses how contemporary poverty and inequality in the United States are qualitatively different now than at the beginning of the War on Poverty. In light of these differences, he points to key areas of research and policy that may be helpful in responding to poverty and disadvantage in the 21st century.
