Customer Review

on May 2, 2012
This book puts forward an idea that will never (probably) be taken up by politicians but which solves a whole host of social and economic problems. It will also probably annoy those on both the political left and right alike! For me, as a policy advisor, it was a revelation and has completely changed my view on benefits systems. Charles Murray argues his case steadily and logically, the only drawback being that his examples are based on the USA, where, although the problems are applicably to the UK and elsewhere, the mechanisms are different (we have the NHS for example), so some of the ideas have to be 'translated across' (an interesting intellectual exercise). It's a core book for our times - and the 'flat benefits' idea goes will with ones on 'flat taxes' - and it is an easy read.
