    Although often perceived as a burden to taxpayers, government spending on programs that serve the poor stimulates the economy, creates jobs and even enhances property values, according to a recent study led by Mary Keegan Eamon, a professor in the School of Social Work. Co-authors of the study were social work professor Chi-Fang Wu (right) and Saijun Zhang, a postdoctoral research associate in the Children and Family Research Center.
