Forum: Can We End Poverty?
The Cato Institute will host a half-day conference to discuss whether President Lyndon Johnson\'s "War on Poverty" was a success, what remains to be done, and whether private charitable efforts would be a better alternative to government welfare programs. Participants include John Allison, president of the Cato Institute; Ron Haskins, co-director of the Center on Children and Families; and John McWhorter, professor at the Center for American Studies at Columbia University. The event will be held from 8:30 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. EST at Columbia University in New York City.
