08 Nov Financial Empowerment, not just Income Support
Momentum hosted a national conference of people dedicated to the development of the most vulnerable in our society. A message that came through really clearly was that all the current asset-building policies support primarily those already with wealth. The more you have, the more you can make.
This leaves those without wealth in an extremely vulnerable situation. The corollary then is the less you have, the less you will have. How then do we build capacity and resilience rather than undermine it so that we have a fair and just society?
