‘Men Without Work’: An Exchange

I am gratified that the NYR Daily chose to review Men Without Work: America’s Invisible Crisis, and that Jeff Madrick is the reviewer since I have always enjoyed, if not always agreed with, his work. However, several oversights and errors in his depiction of my study require correction. I never argue that disability programs caused the great male flight from work. My incontestable point: they helped finance it.
