Summary
Global economic competition is lowering economic expectations in the developed world, just as it is further impoverishing less developed countries. The end of the welfare state -- in all its various incarnations from China to the UK and North America -- is a key element of globalization. Lost Ground: Welfare Reform, Poverty, and Beyond analyzes U.S. welfare reform in the context of larger political shifts, including the end of the family wage, the sexual revolution, and the rise of black liberation, feminism, and multiculturalism
