What are the Best Things We Could Do for the Poor Through Government

  • End the War on Drugs and give amnesty to all non-violent drug prisoners, and criminal justice reform with the aim of reducing incarceration rates. What has done more economic harm to the poor than having their working-age men locked away
  • Hire more and better police. See here. Poor people are too often victims of crime and fraud. It is better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house/neighborhood with crime and violence (or biting insects see below).
  • Allow any subdividing and residential building that increases overall density and some that does not. 
  • Wipe out the mosquito. This seems like it can't be done but I heard about it on NPR see here.
