Welfare reform should be based on high expectations of human potential. We should expect people to make provision for periods in their life when expenditure will be high (e.g. child-rearing) or income will be low (e.g. retirement), and to choose a family structure that will allow them to support any children they may have. In this book, the author argues that the Blair government’s attempts at welfare reform in Great Britain are doomed to failure because they are based on very different premises.
