Center for Poverty Research Releases New Video Series

The UC Davis Center for Poverty Research has released a series of videos entitled 'A Brief Guide to Poverty in the U.S.' These short videos provide a basic foundation for understanding the causes and consequences of this complex problem, as well as possible solutions suggested by research today.

“In the U.S. we have made very little measured progress over the past several decades,” said Ann Stevens, a professor of economics at UC Davis and the center’s director. “This video series is another way the center provides a framework for making a bigger impact by taking these pieces and putting them all together.”

In each video, Faculty Affiliates address important issues about poverty in the U.S., such as how we can think about it, what works to reduce it and how it affects us all. According to the featured faculty, poverty research is the first step toward solutions.
