Challenges to the Welfare State: Internal and External Dynamics for Change by Henry Cavanna



Identifies the relative merits of welfare state systems in the US and Europe; examines and assesses cultural, economic, and political problems they face; and suggests policy to alleviate the problems. Queries whether the continued integration of Europe will result in all citizens being guaranteed only certain basic social rights, and being required to pay for health care, pension provision, and insurance. Concludes that the movement to reduce government debt will require either a big jump in taxes or a big drop in services. Also discusses the transition from communism to capitalism in eastern Europe.
