Income Volatility: Managing the Swings
EPIC’s first issue brief, “Income Volatility: A Primer,” was a comprehensive literature review of what is known about the prevalence, causes, and impacts of income volatility. This second brief looks at managing income volatility at both the household and societal levels. It presents a framework for thinking through possible solutions, both government- and market-based. It was informed by and should be considered part of the EPIC process.
