The Joint Center for Political Studies sponsored a forum to announce the results of a study on poverty in the United States, Canada, and Western Europe. The study was also designed to study the various social policies utilized by other nations to deal with poverty, and compare them with U.S. policies. Forum participants discussed the various social policies in Western Europe and Canada that work to elevate some percentage of the impoverished above the poverty level, and compared them to the U.S. policies concerning poverty which fail to do the same. Issues brought up in the forum included labor markets, family policies, and taxation and financial policies. close
