Consultative arrangements in social policy : the Second Bailey Report
MetadataShow full item record
As Welfare Statism progressed from infancy to maturity it became increasingly apparent that the aspirations of those who stood to gain were being achieved in only the most limited manner. Significant steps were made in income security and opportunity security, but the relationship between donor and recipient was very much a one-way affair. Governments decided what steps should be taken to move more closely towards a welfare society, and target groups accepted the ensuing benefits with feelings of grudging gratitude and increasing powerlessness.
Speech given in November 1978 to the Bailey Committee. Delivered by Adam Graycar, School of Social Sciences, Flinders University.
