Jared Bernstein and Charles Murray debated the role of government in addressing poverty and income inequality. Mr. Murray argued that communities work best with a traditional family structure, and “advance welfare states” discourage people from working and holding jobs. Mr. Bernstein countered that government assistance provides opportunity to help lift people out of poverty, saying, “If economy isn’t creating enough jobs, then it is the role of the public sector to create jobs.” close
