Journal article

Modern social policy as illusion: two societies and the reality of inequality

Author:
KINLOCH Graham C.
Journal article citation:
New Global Development, 20(1&2), 2004, pp.9-14.
Publisher:
Dialogues

Attempts to examine some of the USA's most pressing political, economic and social issues by focusing on their illusionary depiction, underlying reality, types of inequality they reflect and consequent policy implications, contrasted with the current national mentality. Major political issues reflect power elite control, exploitation and manipulation of policy, maximising minority domination and inequality. Economic issues, furthermore, largely serve elite interests and maximise majority power at the cost of minority deprivation, while broad social issues highlight the manner in which power elite interests ensure maintenance of minority exploitation and related types of institutionalised inequality. These general trends highlight the American illusion of open democracy contrasted with its elitist reality. Concludes by discussing implications for developing the New Welfare State.

Theories of power in 'The Three Worlds of Welfare Capitalism'

Author:
KEMENY Jim
Journal article citation:
Journal of European Social Policy, 5(2), 1995, pp.87-96.
Publisher:
Sage

Reviews the influence of Esping-Andersen's 'The Three Worlds of Welfare Capitalism' on comparative social policy, and argues that the power analysis of political power that underpins his thesis has been widely misunderstood. In particular, the concept of 'welfare regime' has lost its original conceptual meaning as a system of power stratification that upholds different types of welfare state. Instead it is widely misused merely to refer to particular types on welfare system. Argues that if comparative studies of welfare state formation are to move beyond Esping-Andersen's pathbreaking analysis, the shortcomings of his analysis of power needs to be centrally addressed, and more squarely located within the wider debates over theories of power.
