Ass't Professor Tina Sacks featured on Berkeley Talks

What are some of the current challenges to maintaining social welfare programs for the nation’s most vulnerable people in the Trump era? Assistant Professor Tina Sacks explores this issue in the latest podcast in the Berkeley Talks series. Her lecture gives an overview of the incidence and demographics of poverty in the United States, then traces the history of sometimes draconian social safety net programs before examining their evolution under the current administration.

Listen to "The American Welfare State in the Age of Trump," originally given on January 30, 2019 as part of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute's speaker series.
