This special issue presents a series of contributions developed from papers given at Child Development Accounts: Research and Policy Symposium, a November 2008 convening hosted in St. Louis, Missouri, by the CSD and Washington University, the New America Foundation, and the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.
