Putting an end to homelessness could come down to basic economics, particularly using policy that reflects the simple fact that people respond to basic incentives.

The School of Public Policy will release a major study that examines a radically new way of ending homelessness.

Professor Brendan O'Flaherty of Columbia University will discuss the study's findings at an upcoming press conference held at The School of Public Policy.
