Contents: Disrupting the deficit view --
A fundamentally flawed social service system --
The challenge: no pitty parties here --
No welfare queens: unsticking the myth that families are "stuck" --

The ultimate sacrifice: inspiring revolution with a chicken and two potatoes --
A race to the bottom: replacing the war on poverty with a dating service --
Us and them: the walls are just high enough so the people we are talking about can't hear us talking about them --Undermining family and village: paternalists advance people's interests at the expense of their liberty --
The alternative put families in the driver's seat --
Following peer paths: that's not the way it's done! --
Positive deviance and epidemics: instead of foam in the ocean, you get a wave --
Modeling the alternative: the basics of the Family Independence Initiative --
The right (data) stuff: the thousand cars doing the right thing --
Making the invisible, visible: contributions by the bottom 2/5ths of our economy --
The alternative: resurrecting the American dream --
Would my mother approve?
Responsibility: Mauricio L. Miller.
