Stevenson and Wolfers among economists who sent childcare letter to Dems

September 15, 2021 Business Insider

Betsey Stevenson and Justin Wolfers, both professors of public policy and economics, were among the 127 economists demanding Democrats in Congress to invest in quality childcare.

"Childcare is an economic problem," Stevenson said. "It is part of the infrastructure that supports society. Parents need to be able to know that their kids are going to be well cared for and well educated when they're at work in order for parents to comfortably feel like they can go to work."
