Welfare or welfare state? : contradictions and dilemmas in social policy by David Marsland( Book )

14 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Welfare State is a failed Utopia. It is costly, inefficient and counterproductive. Governments everywhere are desperately seeking alternatives. Welfare or Welfare State? analyzes the deficiencies of state welfare: its muddled philosophy; its redundancy in an era of economic progress and prosperity; the extravagant costs of the Welfare State; the gross inefficiency arising from monopoly, bureaucracy and inhuman scale; and the destructive impact of universal state welfare on its clients, whom it drives in increasing numbers into underclass dependency. A practical programme of radical reform is proposed. The prosperous majority should opt out of state provision for education, health care, pensions and unemployment protection. They would be better served by self-reliance and the market. For the minority who cannot manage on their own, a new Special Assistance Programme should be instituted - its sole mission to restore them to self-reliance as quickly as possible
Self reliance : reforming welfare in advanced societies( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Specific parallels with the American situation, and implications for United States social policy are examined in a special opening essay by the editor. The key significance of this work for policy personnel and economists is that the authors argue for a structure that can be built up gradually out of the existing outmoded system. They detail methods by which this can be successfully accomplished despite financial constraints likely to be imposed by government officials

Objects of desire : consumer behaviour in shopping centre choices by Charles Dennis( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What determines where people shop? Why would shoppers visit one shopping centre rather than another? Developers, backers, planners and Government will wish to make reliable estimates of the viability of proposed new centres. Developers wish to plan, build and/or improve shopping centres to maximise profitable retail sales. Shopping centre managers want to create lively environments that enhance the shopping experience. From a broader perspective there is a need to understand shopping as a fundamental aspect of modern society. This book explores a range of perspectives from traditional to the latest thinking. The author suggests, perhaps controversially, that shopping styles may be rooted in the lifestyles necessitated when our ancestors adapted to the African savannah. These disparate approaches have been drawn together with a summary of the hypothesis for which the author has found support."--Jacket
