The earned income tax credit (EITC) and child tax credit (CTC) are tax credits for low-income families that paradoxically exclude the poorest families. This book challenges the conventional wisdom on American exceptionalism and offers the first and only comparative analysis of the politics on these important anti-poverty tax credits.
