An excellent economic analysis of social welfare economics,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Economics of the Welfare State (Paperback)
Nicholas Barr has written an excellent text, which focuses of the economic and financial structures of social welfare systems. A quite brilliant analysis, one which does not dabble in political comment (which is the norm with similar other books). A must for the economics student, and a challenging read for anyone interested in how our welfare system works - or how it should work!
