Financing Strategies for Learning and Asset Development. Ray Boshara and Reid Cramer. New America Foundation. October 1, 2003.  While the evidence strongly suggests that assets are worth accumulating for both economic and social reasons, this begs the question, how can the poor possibly accumulate assets? To answer this question, we closely examine the U.S. experience with Individual Development Accounts (IDAs), which has demonstrated the potential of the poor to save and build assets.
