Abstract

This article aims to propose the creation of a marketplace mechanism that can create significant wealth for the poor and low income citizens of a nation. The innovative approach described here is to create legislation that allows for the creation of a new product for investment targeted to low-income families. The distinguishing feature of this product is that it creates wealth without imposing negative externalities on the wealthy or future generations as traditional policy tools like taxes do.

Keywords: behavioral finance, poverty, log optimal portfolios, public policy, innovation, wealth creation
