Everyone Is on Welfare: "The Role of Redistribution in Social Policy" Revisited.
Abramovitz, Mimi
Social Work, v28 n6 p440-45 Nov-Dec 1983
Uses Titmuss's model of three welfare systems to analyze how the rapidly expanding system of tax benefits available to middle- and upper-income groups parallels the social welfare system for the poor. Operating as a shadow welfare state, the tax benefits system contributes to the upward redistribution of income. (Author/JAC)
