Your Call: Profiting from the poor

Aug 24, 2016

On the August 25th edition of  Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Daniel Hatcher about his new book The Poverty Industry: The Exploitation of America's Most Vulnerable Citizens.

The book tells the story of how states and human service agencies partner with private companies to siphon funds intended for children and the poor. How does this industry work? And how does it impact the poor and the vulnerable? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.  


Daniel Hatcher, Professor of Law at the University of Baltimore
