Economics 101: In-Kind Transfers


What are in-kind transfers?

In-Kind Transfers are transfers to others - usually the poor - that are non-monetary.

Typically, these transfers are some form of goods and/or services.

Common examples are food stamps, and medical care.

Rather that giving cash for the poor to buy food or medical care, the benefits are given directly.
