Policymakers have struggled with how to reduce long-standing inequalities based on race. Recently there have been calls for reparations with many innovative ideas. While policymakers debate how to implement these suggestions, there are many promising approaches to college access and home ownership that already exist, which accomplish some of the same goals. Prof. Trina Shanks will discuss baby bonds, child savings accounts, promise scholarships, and various home ownership incentive programs in progress, and how they could make a real difference in the lives of low to moderate income families.
The Center on Finance, Law & Policy’s “blue bag lunches” aim to foster interdisciplinary collaborations and showcase the work being done at the University of Michigan on issues related to finance, law, and policy. Faculty and graduate students are welcome to present research related to finance, law, and policy at any stage at these monthly events – from general questions and ideas, to works-in-progress, to published work.

Blue Bag Lunches are generally held on the first Thursday of each month from Noon – 1:00 p.m. For the fall semester, these will take place in the Law School's Jeffries Hall, Room 1060.
