This course has four modules, or foci. The first is to understand the categories of social welfare—populations, income, earnings, and assets— and some related concepts that play a very large role in shaping policy decisions: unemployment, inflation, and the minimum wage. The second deals with the central institution of social welfare—the labor market, which largely determines how many resources a person has. The labor market also establishes hierarchy, both through meritocracy and through categories of privilege. The third is poverty: the differing ways we define who is poor, and how effective U.S. anti-poverty efforts have been. The final module looks directly at federal decision making, the political organization of ideas, the structure of U.S. government, and the legislative process that shapes much of our social policy. This course addresses issues of power, oppression, and white supremacy.

Excellent course. I love the professor--very engaging, compassionate, and clear.
Very insightful, well-organized, and interesting guest speakers. Overall an experience I would recommend!
The first half of the course was a little redundant, but the second half on government was EXCELLENT!!! Thanks again!
It was a great learning and easy to understand. The reading materials were so helpful. I will choose more courses related to development and planning.
