Understanding the border crisis

Understanding the border crisis

Can this one civic institution save civilization? Brad Wilcox on his new book: Get Married

What are the right ingredients for creating the best chance of upward mobility for the most people? Policy experts and elected officials trying to reduce poverty have asked versions of this question for decades. There's a strong argument to be made that Utah has the answer. 

A new report from the Archbridge Institute ranks social mobility in all 50 states, with Utah taking the top spot as the best state in the nation for opportunity. Nic Dunn sits down with the authors of this new study to discuss their findings. Gonzalo Schwarz is the president and CEO of the Archbridge Institute. Justin Callais is a research fellow with Archbridge, and he teaches economics and finance at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.  

They outline why Utah does so well in social mobility metrics, where the state can still improve, and what other states could learn.

What Utah's ranking as best state for social mobility teaches us about poverty

Is work a punishment or a blessing? This question is often at the heart of debates about how to help people striving to get out of poverty as well as discussions on the role of things like work requirements. Utah has an answer to this question, and on this episode we explain why many other states are looking to Utah's unique approach to welfare and workforce development.
 
Nic Dunn sits down with two different guests this week to discuss "The Utah Model" and how the way government programs are set up can either help or hurt those working to escape poverty. 
 
Mason Bishop is a nonresident senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, and the principal and owner of WorkED Consulting. He is the author of "The Utah Model," an AEI paper that outlines why Utah's approach to co-locating safety net programs and workforce development resources under one state agency has benefited Utahns. Mason also outlines why this is the only one of its kind throughout the nation and why other states are taking interest. 
 
Nate McDonald is the former deputy director for the Utah Department of Workforce Services.
