Long-term economic benefits of investing in early childhood programs: Proven programs boost economic development and benefit the nation's fiscal health

Description:
A summary of two analyses, one modeling the state- and nation-level job and earnings creation effects of three early childhood development programs targeted at disadvantaged children, and comparing these effects to those of a hypothetical half-day universal prekindergarten program and of traditional business subsidies for job growth promotion; the other modeling the long-term fiscal benefits of early childhood development programs--in terms of future increased income tax revenues from, fewer government transfers to, and lower education costs of program participants--to the fiscal costs, in terms of government funding for the programs
