Econ Focus, First Quarter 2017 – Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond — Poverty and Lead Poisoning

Source: Econ Focus, First Quarter 2017 – Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond

This is a terrific and unusual piece for a bank to publish. It traces the history and highlights how America’s weak unions and strong lobbyists prevented action being taken on it for at least 50 years after Europe had banned it. As corporations continue to do today with any science that threatens to protect it’s customers from poisoning, they “cast doubt” on the science, blamed the poor, etc. I highly recommend it.
