This week on Banter we’re joined by our new part time co-host Janine Nichols and guest Dr. Brad Wilcox. Janine is going to be filling in from time to time on Banter and in her first episode we’ll introduce her and see if she can handle the heat.
Our guest this week, Dr. Brad Wilcox, is a visiting fellow at AEI where he’s heading up the Home Economics Project. He also is an assistant professor of sociology at UVA where he directs the National Marriage Project. He’ll talk with us about income inequality and mobility and what factors lead to both. He gives us a few solid examples of what states are doing to help solve the problem. We also spend some time discussing new bills in front of congress that aim to strengthen the family. Enjoy!
