In this podcast, economist Tim Beatty of the University of California, Davis talks about an article he co-wrote with Charlotte Tuttle about the SNAP or food stamps program and what happened to people’s spending when there was a sudden increase in the program benefit. Beatty says the answer can tell us something about whether the labels we use for public benefit programs influence how people spend their money.
