Child Poverty and Inequality

Duncan Lindsey

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that we need to embrace the mechanism that makes wealth possible — capitalism — and the opportunity and prosperity it provides. More importantly, we need to ensure that all children have an opportunity to participate in wealth ownership, which is the heart of capitalism. We need to embrace an “assets-based” approach to ending child poverty. Central to this approach is providing all children with the resources and opportunity to accumulate wealth. The main program that would allow this is a progressive child savings account.
