Moving Working Families Forward points to a Third Way between liberals and conservatives, combining a commitment to government expenditures that enhance the incomes of working families while recognizing that concerns for program effectiveness, individual responsibility, and underutilization of market incentives are justified. While conservatives often propose economic incentives to promote desirable behavior, and liberals are often aghast at these policies, Third Way advocates take a more flexible position.Robert Cherry and Robert Lerman provide the context to understand the distinctive qualities of Third Way policies, focusing on seven areas that substantially affect working families: immigration, race and gender earnings disparities, education, housing, strengthening partnerships, and federal taxes. Balancing quantitative empirical studies with voices of working class people who are affected by the policies being discussed, they argue that, in each of these areas, Third Way policies are superior compared to those proposed by the right and the left, offering an engaging and important perspective on how public policies should be changed. A timely approach, Moving Working Families Forward makes policy recommendations that are both practical and transformative.Read Less
