Item description for A New Social Question?: On Minimum Income Protection in the Postindustrial Era (Amsterdam University Press - Changing Welfare States Series) by Ive Marx...
Social scientists, politicians, and economists have recently been taken with the idea that the advanced welfare states of Europe face a "New Social Question." The core idea is that the transition from an industrial to a postindustrial environment has brought with it a whole new set of social risks, constraints, and trade-offs, which necessitate radical recalibration of social security systems. A New Social Question? analyzes that question in depth, with particular attention to the problem of income protection and the difficulties facing Bismarckian welfare states. It will be necessary reading for anyone interested in understanding the future of European social policy.
