There remains a great divide between the two parties on how to address the problem of poverty. The stark contrasts were highlighted in conflicting views expressed about the recently released poverty recommendations from Speaker Paul Ryan's poverty task force. It might seem there is little hope in bridging this divide, but we would argue differently. We are convinced that our nation can make significant progress in addressing the problem of poverty if the trend toward using behavioral science to guide policymaking reaches its full potential.
