Adriana Lleras-Muney in Vox and The New York Times

Adriana Lleras-Muney’s co-authored article on Mothers’ Pensions has been cited in two national news outlets this month, The New York Times and Vox.  The New York Times article cites Lleras-Muney’s study in an article about supply side economics, while Vox draws upon her research in connection to child poverty in the US.  Lleras-Muney’s paper shows how paying cash to poor families where the breadwinner died led those children to earn significantly higher incomes.
