2024 Henry Cohen Lecture Series: Baby Bonds and Beyond

March 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Baby Bonds are an increasingly popular government policy in which every child born into poverty receives a publicly funded trust account at birth, providing them with “start-up capital” to pursue fulfilling, productive, prosperous, and self-directed lives.

This conversation will ask: how do we forge a new economy that fosters broad prosperity and opportunity with economic inclusion, civic engagement, social equity and human dignity at its center, regardless of one’s identity? Additionally, we will debunk the myth of hard work as the driver of our economic inequalities, and address why policy and investments (like Baby Bonds) must address both income and wealth.
