Your children will study Andy Stern as the most important labor leader in the 20th century. Cesar Chavez got the postage stamp, but Andy built a far bigger, stronger, and better labor union. He was not afraid to make enemies in doing this -- and he has acquired more than a few here in Southern California.

Malcolm Torry delivers a blockbuster argument in favour of a Citizen's Income to wholly or partially replace current benefits.

(2013) Money for everyone: Why we need a citizen's income. Malcolm Torry

His book is well-researched, well-informed, well-written, and is articulate and readable. His main argument is that, given widespread acceptance of a benefits scheme of some sort, then a Citizen's Income is by far the best option. Specifically it avoids the disincentives of very high marginal deduction rates of current benefits which create the familiar unemployment and poverty traps. According to Torry, a Citizen's Income would incentivise employment, training, new business formation, women's participation rates, and can even reduce teenage pregnancy in Namibia.

It is socially cohesive. Torry's very thorough presentation is worthy of the LSE tradition to which it belongs, established by major figures such as Richard Titmuss whom he frequently quotes. Due to its thorough coverage, the book is long, and sometimes repetitive.

Every year, the American government redistributes more than a trillion dollars of wealth to provide for retirement, health care, and the alleviation of poverty. We still have millions of people without comfortable retirements, without adequate health care, and living in poverty. Only a government can spend so much money so ineffectually. " From the War on Poverty, on, however, too many still think we can finally succeed...if only the problem is bombarded with yet more cash. Charles Murray disagrees. So, what's the solution? The central point of the Plan, thus, is make people more individually responsible. (2005) What's Wrong with a Free Lunch? Philippe Van Parijs.

Joseph Hanlon, Armando Barrientos, and David Hulme Amid all the complicated economic theories about the causes and solutions to poverty, one idea is so basic that it seems radical: bypass governments and NGOs, provide direct cash transfers, and let the poor decide how to use their money. Discussing this alternative, looking at both problems and successes and stressing that cash transfers are neither charity nor a safety net, the authors provide a compelling overview of practices that actually work.
