The Failure of Liberal Homeless Policy in the Koch and Dinkins Administration
J. PHILLIP THOMPSON examines how the flawed policy positions of homeless advocates and of the administrations of Edward I. Koch and David Dinkins led to unworkable housing policies in New York City. He suggests that support for social welfare programs would be better served through a more self-limited role on the part of legal advocates and the courts.
