    Beginning in the 1950s, America entered a period of unprecedented social reform. This remarkable book demonstrates how the social programs of the 1960s and ’70s had the unintended and perverse effect of slowing and even reversing earlier progress in reducing poverty, crime, ignorance, and discrimination. Using widely understood and accepted data, it conclusively demonstrates that the amalgam of reforms from 1965 to 1970 actually made matters worse.

    Would you listen to Losing Ground again? Why?

    Yes, I would like to commit to memory many of the analyses and figures.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a compelling argument to rethink our entire social policy system. I have been casting about for fixes all my life and failed to understand the fundamental assumptions underlying our treatment of the poor and how insidious they have been.
