The Family in the Welfare State

Front Cover
Allen & Unwin, 1990 - Australia - 284 pages
It's a commonplace that 'the family is in trouble'. The vast increase in welfare spending since the 1950s has not eradicated social problems in the way its architects hoped; in fact there is good evidence that the supply of welfare benefits has created its own demand. Yet there is little public debate about the fundamentals of the welfare state, and the usual response to the problems of the family is to demand more welfare spending.
