In July of this year, Robert Doar officially took the reins as President of the American Enterprise Institute, succeeding friend of Acton Arthur C. Brooks in that role. Yesterday, we were pleased to welcome Doar to deliver an address on poverty in America as part of the 2019 Acton Lecture Series. Doar reviewed the history of welfare reform during and after the Clinton Administration, discussed what works and what doesn’t when trying to help those in poverty to rise toward prosperity, and shared a bit of his personal story to illuminate how he came to be deeply interested in finding solutions to poverty.

We’re pleased to share the video of Doer’s presentation below.
