--and economic justice for all: welfare reform for the 21st century

Front Cover
M.E. Sharpe, 1997 - Business & Economics - 234 pages
Murray presents an argument for a system of social insurance that replaces welfare with a Guaranteed Adequate Income. The book reviews the current public assistance programs, including SSI, AFDC, Unemployment Compensation, and Food Stamps, summarizing the positive aspects and inadequacies of each plan; it also evaluates other plans that have been proposed. A rationale and cost analysis of GAI concludes the book. Written in a non-technical and comprehensible style, the plan is designed to be politically non-partisan and appeal to both liberals and conservatives.
