James Bartholomew's Welfare State
"A splendid book. A devastating critique of the welfare state. A page-turner, yet also extensively sourced. I congratulate Mr. Bartholomew." Milton Friedman
It is a page-turner.
James Bartholomew recently appeared at the Cato Institute. He argues that "the welfare state in Britain has resulted in a generation of badly educated and dependent citizens, leading to lives of deprivation for thousands and undermining the original intent behind its creation in the 1940s. Has the welfare state really led to more harm than good? What does this imply for the ever-expanding welfare state in the United States"?
And if so, what is to be done?
