Understanding Welfare: Social Issues, Policy and Practice


Glennerster writes primarily for students of social policy who need to understand what economists say about social policy without delving into the depths of economic theorems. In sections on principles and paying for services, he covers the cost of welfare; market failure and government failure; what to tax, who to tax, and how much to tax; rationing--who gets what; cash benefits as pensions and during working age; health services; paying for care; paying for schools and for post-compulsory education; and housing. Distributed in North America by University of Chicago Press. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
