The American Prospect: Children in the Wake of the Great Recession

Jared Bernstein, in The American Prospect, looks at some of the effects of the Great Recession on children, along with the effects of the Stimulus Act.

Bernstein's article is linked below.

The American Prospect: Children of the Great Recession

"While the safety net performed well during the worst phase of the downturn, other trends have been troubling. Families lost trillions of dollars in home equity, the largest source of wealth for working- and middle-class households. Long-term structural inequality persists, so the modest economic growth that has returned since 2010 is eluding most families."
