Poverty Is Not Just About Income - It's Also About Assets

by Cynthia Williams

In Poverty is Not Just About Income – It's Also About Assets, a presentation to the conference, "Investing in Self-Sufficiency: Moving the Asset-Building Agenda Forward in B.C.", in Coquitlam last October, Williams argues that failure to see poverty in broader terms leads to policy responses that emphasize income support, responses that do not go far enough to provide a route out of poverty.
