Transforming welfare : new economics, New Labour and the new Tories /

by Coote, Anna | The New Economics Foundation | Franklin, Jane.

Publisher: London, U.K. The New Economics Foundation 2010Description: 46 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Over sixty years we have grown accustomed to benefits and services provided by the welfare state. All the while, the volume of provision has expanded exponentially, driven by a growing and ageing population, by rising public expectations, and in some cases, notably healthcare, by scientific advances and by supply driving up demand. This expansion was possible because the economy continued to grow. Then came the collapse of global financial systems and a steep economic downturn from which 'recovery' is uncertain. Furthermore, the prospect of more economic growth is problematic: evidence suggests that growth in the 'developed' world cannot be 'decoupled' from carbon emissions sufficiently and in time to avoid catastrophic climate change. So it makes sense to plan for minimal growth or none at all. In that case, what will become of the welfare state? Deep cuts are already planned by the Labour government and by the Tories - and neither party has yet contemplated a future without growth. What should be saved and what thrown overboard? More important, how could and should the welfare system be restructured?Availability: (1)

by Hetherington, David | Policy Network | Soutphommasane, Tim.

Publisher: London, U.K. Policy Network 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2010Summary: Climate change politics in Australia has become the focus of much attention in the midst of incendiary rhetoric, increasing public disillusionment and a fear that debate is slipping into the partisan and unforgiving arena of the national "culture wars".
