Inhaltsangabe: Published in 1989 in paperback, 379pp, this edition of 'Poverty & Social Security' by A. B. Atkinson (ISBN 0745000258) is focused around the persistence of poverty in industrialised countries and the attempt to abolish it through social security programmes (a topic that remains one of the most vital issues addressed by economists). This book is a careful selection of essays on the topic by one of the economic profession's most eminent scholars. The first section of the book is concerned with the measurement of poverty. It covers conceptual problems in the definition of poverty, including the development of new techniques to deal with differences in social judgements regarding the choice of poverty line and indicators of poverty. The subsequent chapters are concerned with the extent of poverty in Britain, paying special attention to changes over the last fifty years and to the influence of unemployment. The second section of the book examines the effectiveness of social security and its impact. Among the topics considered are the role of unemployment insurance and its possible effects on return to employment, the development of retirement incomes over the next half century and the role of earnings-related pensions, the incomplete take-up of income-tested benefits and the poverty trap. The final section deals with proposals for reform of social security, including the integration of taxes and benefits and schemes for a basic income. Many of the essays are previously unpublished or not readily available. Professor Atkinson tackles important conceptual issues on the nature of poverty and the problems associated with its measurement. Despite the empirical work relating mostly to the UK, the methodology used will be of interest to academic and government economists looking at poverty and the proper design of social security programmes. Contents: Part 1: Poverty; Part 2: Social Insurance and Social Assistance; Part 3: Reforming Social Security & Income Tax in the UK
