Homeless People in Canada Given Money

A controlled experiment has shown what I have advocated, that giving poor people money is a better way to get them out of poverty than by enrolling them in programs. In this case, homeless people were given $7500 in Canadian dollars and told they could spend it how they wished. Most spent the money on housing and other necessities. Good job.
