Horwitz: War on Poverty Keeps the Poor Down


Tags Interventionism


Steve Horwitz chimes in on the discussions on poverty and inequality here. He notes that the competitive market is what reduced poverty in the US. It is the War on Poverty that actually prevents the poor from making economic progress. Then he offers three great suggestions for helping the poor out of poverty, including ending the War on Drugs.

Mark Thornton is a Senior Fellow at the Mises Institute and the book review editor of the Quarterly Journal of Austrian Economics. He has authored seven books and is a frequent guest on national radio shows.
