This volume discusses what lessons have been learnt from past efforts to eliminate poverty in the United States, such as the 1935 Social Security Act and the 1964 War on Poverty, and what steps should be taken in the future. Chelf has radical suggestions for the future elimination of poverty. He advocates that it is necessary to develop a social and political agenda recognizing the need to invest and re-invest in human resources.
