A Pragmatic Approach to the Problem of Poverty.
Atherton, Charles R.
Social Work, v37 n3 p197-201 May 1992
Provides critical review of three contemporary strategies for fighting poverty: reform within existing public welfare system; new version of social demogrant idea as extension of social insurance approach; and radical social reform. Concludes that public assistance reform will bring only modest gains, any form of guaranteed annual income is unlikely, and radical social reform has little appeal. (Author/NB)
