New Addition: Jacob Hacker
We're pleased to have Jacob Hacker joining the PolySigh team. Jacob is Peter Strauss Family Assistant Professor of Political Science at Yale and a fellow at the New America Foundation. A frequent media commentator on U.S. health and social policy, he is the author of two books: The Road to Nowhere: The Genesis of President Clinton's Plan for Health Security, and The Divided Welfare State: The Battle over Public and Private Social Benefits in the United States. And in case you haven't seen it, Jacob has a great new article in the current issue of the New Republic on the growing importance of economic insecurity.
