WHY WAS THE U.S. WELFARE SYSTEM REFORMED IN 1996, AND HOW HAS THE REFORM WORKED SINCE THEN?

Today's Buggy Topic

It's found, as usual, in a lengthy thread at Economist View . . . the admirable web site run by Professor Mark Thoma, a macro-economist at the University of Oregon.  And as it happens, it's in the same thread about American education that prof bug had posted in four or five times already. 

By the time prof bug left his latest three posts in that thread --- with over 200 posts altogether --- the subject-matter that kicked off the thread had widened.  Those last buggy posts dealt directly with the welfare system, and for reasons that those of you who have followed that thread linked to in earlier buggy articles here will be familiar with. 

To Find Those Latest Posts,

. . . click here.  Please note that the thread's posted replies are found on three pages.  To get to the new buggy stuff, run --- if you want --- a "show more comments" on the first page.  Or scroll down to the end: you'll find a blue bar with those words.  Click on the bar.   On the second page, run "buggy professor" searches for the earlier and one of the new  prof bug posts.  When you're through, click on the "show more comments" at the bottom of the second page, and voila! you'll be on the third page and find two more long buggy posted comments.
