Recent economic reforms in Great Britain have made changes both in the structure of benefits paid to the poor of working age and in the state pension scheme. Together they constitute the most substantial single set of reforms to the system since the post-war Beveridge proposals which laid the foundations of the modern welfare state in Britain. This volume brings together leading economic authorities to comment on the development, nature and impact of the reforms that have been implemented, to examine some of the underlying conceptual problems of social security provision, and to discuss the economic effects of such provisions. Their contributions cover all areas of this complex field and include comparative evidence from outside the UK.
