New Asset Building Blog: The Ladder

Posted by on September 29, 2008

The Asset Building Program is launching a new blog called The Ladder.

As the asset building field has grown, there are increasing opportunities to highlight the value of the assets perspective and its links to a number of policy discussions. This is a positive development because one of the primary goals of our program is to ensure that assets -broadly defined-become a permanent feature of how social policy is conceived, developed, and delivered in the United States and around the world.

We plan to use The Ladder to make these connections and offer our timely commentary. Since all members of our assets team will be posting, we invite you to visit as often as you like. New content will be added daily. The site has a “comments” feature so your feedback is not only invited but will be shared with others.

Ellen Seidman has already posted a piece refuting some misconceptions that recently have made the rounds about the Community Reinvestment Act and its links to the rise sub-prime mortgage defaults. And of course, we have a few things to say about Tax Day as well.

So, please give it a look and a read and let us know what you think.
