The ebook will be available in iBooks, ePub, and PDF versions and offers an in-depth causative analysis of foreclosures among homeowners in Chicago inner-city communities and the subsequent national and global financial impact. The book focuses on helping communities build and sustain multi-channel development strategies at individual and collective levels.

TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) is a family program by the US Department of Health & Human Services. The program is designed to provide needy families with financial assistance based on grants from the Federal government to State governments. One of the key focus areas of the program is to reduce individual and family dependence on government welfare.

The book presents a case for the effective deployment of the TANF program to empower individuals, especially those from minorities to become productive contributors to their local communities. Author Eddie L Franklin takes readers through a broad spectrum of social and anthropological viewpoints to assert the need to enable people being released from prison to gain employable skills, obtain training, and migrate out of the welfare system.

The book seeks to address the social struggle of individuals feigning mental and physical illness in order to obtain welfare. Franklin discusses subsidized labor, the rehabilitation of housing, and finding socially and economically sustainable solutions for former prison inmates. The book’s strategies also focus on helping communities invest in future-ready IT skills for their children.

According to a spokesperson for Co Op Community Development, “There is hardly a family in inner-city communities that don’t have someone of welfare and many of these people can be healthy if they stop programming their minds to be ill. We look to an alternative by using the Social Responsibility and Economic Recovery Act of 1996 which requires that any person on welfare must work a set number of hours to get benefits.”

Apr 24, 2019

BEIJING — Asian stocks fell Thursday after Wall Street declined despite encouraging Chinese economic data. Benchmarks in Shanghai, Tokyo, Seoul and Hong Kong all retreated. Sydney was little-changed.

"The surprisingly robust China GDP data failed to ignite a rally on Wall Street as U.S. investors turn focus to domestic concerns," said Stephen Innes of SPI Asset Management in a report. He said investors are "increasingly cautious" about possibly misreading...

Apr 24, 2019

BEIJING — China and Japan have the opportunity to "take charge of the economic field" during a time of worldwide uncertainty, Japan's foreign minister said Sunday, as trade pressures from the United States have prompted both countries to seek alternative markets. Foreign Minister Taro Kono met with his Chinese counterpart, Wang Yi, in Beijing to discuss youth exchanges and economic relations between the two countries, whose ties "completely recovered" last year, according to Kono. The relationship was turbulent in previous years due to an unresolved dispute over islands in the East China Sea. High-level exchanges were frozen in 2012 after...
