The Housing Crisis: Who Should Be Helped?
Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), December 2008
In light of the crisis in the American housing and financial markets, there are proponents calling for a relief policy that distinguishes between the "deserving poor" and the "undeserving poor". Weicher argues against these positions, since the effort of identifying the deserving is futile and counterproductive. Attempting to pass retrospective judgment on people's motivations is a moral and practical mistake and the determination of "deserving" should be left to a higher authority.
