Structural model of the effects of poverty on externalizing behaviors of four-to five-year-old children .
Eamon, M. K. (2000, September). Social Work Research, 24(3), 143-154.
Mother-child data of the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth were used to identify the parenting practices that mediate relations between persistent, recent, and transitional poverty and the externalizing and internalizing behaviors of children 4 to 5 years old. Persistent poverty is associated with a lower-quality physical home environment, which is linked to children’s internalizing behaviors. Lower-quality physical environment, maternal emotional unresponsiveness, and fewer stimulating experiences contribute significantly to the effect of recent poverty on internalizing behaviors. Lower-quality physical environment and fewer stimulating experiences mediate the relation between recent poverty and externalizing behaviors. Contrary to hypothesized relations, transitional poverty predicts fewer externalizing and internalizing behaviors.

Mental health barriers to employment for TANF recipients.
Stromwall, L. K. (2002). Journal of Poverty, 6(3), 109-120.
The Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program’s main outcome goal of caseload reduction has resulted in a blanket attempt to reduce caseloads across all populations of TANF recipients, even though it is widely acknowledged that many TANF recipients may have significant barriers to employment. This study examines the mental health-related quality of life and related characteristics of female TANF recipients and nonrecipients, aged 18-40, receiving publicly funded mental health service (N=487) to identify potential barriers to employment among TANF recipients in this group. TANF recipients reported significantly more distress and functional limitations related to their mental health than nonrecipients. This subgroup of TANF recipients is in need of specific attention from both the public welfare and mental health systems. The barriers to employment and the public policy goals of welfare reform related to this population are discussed. (Journal abstract.)

Introduction: Pressing issues of inequality among Asian American communities.
Kilty, K. M., Segal, E. A. & Kim, R. Y. (2002). Journal of Poverty (entire-issue), 6(4), 1-3.
Race and ethnicity figure prominently in analyses of poverty and inequality in this country. The extent of poverty, whether for individuals, families, or children, has been well-documented for Native Americans, African Americans, and Latinos. The profound impact of discrimination and limitations on opportunities for these groups has also received considerable attention. Yet there is one exception to this examination of poverty and inequality: Asian Americans. To a large extent, that is due to the belief that Asian Americans represent the “model minority” in American society, and that they illustrate how well the American Dream really works for those who are willing to apply themselves. In contrast to other racial and ethnic groups, Asian Americans represent a group that has worked hard to achieve success in this society. They go to school and earn degrees that allow them to enter well paying professional occupations or start their own businesses and put in the long hours necessary to ensure success. (This special issue contains five articles that examine aspects of poverty and inequality for Asian Americans in this society.)

– and and lots of other people – explained why citing Murray got Ryan accused of racism. The New York Times columnist stated flatly that Murray is “most famous for arguing that blacks are genetically inferior to whites.” Josh and I and others spent a lot more time and energy explaining Murray’s pernicious race and class biases, but of course Murray replied only to Krugman. And to do so, he cherry-picked a few sentences from “The Bell Curve” in which he and his late co-author, Richard Herrnstein, acknowledged there remains debate over whether the lower IQ scores of blacks and Latinos are genetic or environmental.

Social and environmental predictors of maternal depression in current and recent welfare recipients.
Siefert, K., Bowman, P.J., Heflin, C. M., Danziger, S. & Williams, D. R. (2000, October). American Journal of Orthopsychiatry, 70(4), 510-522.
Depression is highly prevalent in welfare recipients and is associated with failure to move from welfare to work. This paper examines the relationship between social and environmental factors in a large community-based sample of mothers who currently or recently received welfare benefits. Specific and modifiable risk factors related to poverty, gender, and race were found to predict major depression beyond traditional risk factors. Research and practice implications are discussed.

Suppose putting out natural fires, culling feral animals ordestroying some individual members of overpopulated indigenous speciesis necessary for the protection of the integrity of a certainecosystem. Will these actions be morally permissible or even required?Is it morally acceptable for farmers in non-industrial countries topractise slash and burn techniques to clear areas for agriculture?Consider a mining company which has performed open pit mining in somepreviously unspoiled area. Does the company have a moral obligation torestore the landform and surface ecology? And what is the value of ahumanly restored environment compared with the originally naturalenvironment? It is often said to be morally wrong for human beings topollute and destroy parts of the natural environment and to consume ahuge proportion of the planet’s natural resources. If that is wrong,is it simply because a sustainable environment is essential to(present and future) human well-being? Or is such behaviour also wrongbecause the natural environment and/or its various contents havecertain values in their own right so that these values ought to berespected and protected in any case? These are among the questionsinvestigated by environmental ethics. Some of them are specificquestions faced by individuals in particular circumstances, whileothers are more global questions faced by groups and communities. Yetothers are more abstract questions concerning the value and moralstanding of the natural environment and its non-human components.
