This unique book, now available in paperback, demonstrates how instruments of economics can be usefully employed to analyze social policy. The merits and limits of social policy programs are discussed as answers to problems of market societies. Taking this enlightening approach the author addresses such key issues as access to health services, pension programs, unemployment, poverty and family support. Microeconomic tools are used to evaluate the rationale behind these programs, underpinning the theoretical propositions with strong empirical research. Unusually, economic values are shown to harmonize with, rather than condemn, ideas of social protection. Providing information about institutional structures of social policy programs in many countries, this book will be a must for academics and students interested in social policy and the welfare state. Furthermore, those who want to follow the political and scientific discussion of social policy matters will find this book invaluable.
