Michael Novak, RIP
By all accounts, Novak was a gentle soul who was productive in terms of his work and innovative in his thinking. From Acton, here are five facts about and six quotes from Novak.
A Novak quote on research which demonstrates that the way out of poverty for most Americans is to make a few simple life choices: “Some 97 percent of those who complete high school, stay married (even if not on the first try), and work full-time year-round (even at the minimum wage) are not poor. Nearly all poverty in the United States is associated with the absence of one or more of these three basic accomplishments”—not with insufficient social spending or a lack of economic opportunity.
Finally, Heritage is getting ready to put on a celebration of Novak's life and work.
