Event Description

Yale @ Gateway Speaker Series
Monday, November 16, 2015 6pm
Room N100 Gateway Community College, New Haven 06510
Moderated by Paul Solman, Economics correspondent for PBS The NewsHour
An expert on the politics of U.S. health and social policy, Jacob Hacker is the author of Winner-Take-All Politics: How Washington Made the Rich Richer and Turned Its Back on the Middle Class, written with Paul Pierson (2010, paperback 2011).In 2010 with support from the Rockefeller Foundation, he and a group of multi-disciplinary researchers including Greg Huber and Mark Schlesinger of ISPS developed the Economic Security Index (ESI), which measures the share of Americans who experience at least a 25 percent decline in their income from one year to the next. The ESI is regularly updated, and each year, Professor Hacker and his team release additional supplemental reports that extend one or more aspect of the ESI.In 2012, Professor Hacker with Nate Loewentheil (Yale Law) wrote an economic blueprint, “Prosperity Economics: Building an Economy for All,” that sets forth a plan to broadly spread economic growth and security for Americans. The proposal was supported by a coalition labor, community and civil rights groups as part of a new campaign called Prosperity for All

In DC, LISC selected as Fund Manager for a new Housing Preservation Fund

A Bold New $45 Million Partnership Takes Aim at the Health Gap

A vigorous and unprecedented partnership between LISC and ProMedica, an Ohio-based integrated health system, is set to inject tens of millions of dollars to improve health outcomes and wellbeing in underinvested Toledo neighborhoods. The collaboration, which will serve as a national model, will fund opportunities for employment, income-building, education, community safety and affordable housing—all the social determinants that shape a person’s health. “When we connect [the] talent and resources [of the healthcare industry] to the expertise of community developers, we have an opportunity to drive changes that help people live better—literally adding years to their life,” said LISC CEO Maurice Jones. “That’s incredibly powerful.”
