Quote Of The Day

“I think the evidence is very strong that family background is a major predictor of future behavior of children. So a disproportionate number of problem kids come from disadvantaged families. The simple economics of intervention therefore suggests that society should focus its investment where it’s likely to have very high returns. Right now, that is the disadvantaged population”. —Interview with James J. Heckman, Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences, 2000
