Some reactions to my article in the Times Magazine on President Obama, Roseland, and poverty:
1. Whet Moser at Chicagomag.com makes the point that Obama’s healthcare reforms are arguably themselves an anti-poverty program (and one I didn’t give much space to in the piece).
2. Amanda Erickson at the Atlantic’s Cities blog reflects on why the Harlem Children’s Zone hasn’t been replicated more successfully. (I agree with her that Geoffrey Canada is a rare leader, but I think there are lots of other great leaders out there.)
3. Jared Bernstein weighs in on jobs, schools, and the Furman Effect.
4. And the folks at Longreads chose the article as one of the week’s best.
