In this Perspective, Ray Boshara reflects upon his nearly 20 years on the “front lines” in Washington, DC, trying to advance Sherraden’s account- and savings-based policies to build assets for the poor. Boshara recounts events in the development of this new paradigm for inclusive development and considers their implications for the financial well-being of the nation’s poor.
