Psychological Perspectives on Welfare Reform
Public welfare, Social policy
This chapter examines three questions. The first is the matter of how the values, attitudes and beliefs of policy makers and the public help shape reforms. The second is how the behavior of welfare recipients in response to reforms compares to the expectations that underlie those initiatives. Third, the chapter examines the implications of those comparisons.
