Abstract

In The Financial Diaries: How American Families Cope in a World of Uncertainty, Jonathan Morduch and Rachel Schneider focus on the volatility of domestic finances in the USA, presenting the findings of a new study based on the diaries of 235 households. In identifying the shared experience of financial uncertainty and the impact on people’s lives, this book provides a strong case that a new policy agenda is needed to tackle economic insecurity, writes Joe Lane.
