Everyone knows that the American welfare state is less expensive and extensive, later to develop and slower to grow, than comparable programs abroad.

With historical reach and statistical and cross-national evidence, The divided welfare state demonstrates that private social benefits have not been shaped by public policy, but have deeply influenced the politics of public social programs-to produce a social policy framework whose political and social effects are strikingly different than often assumed."@en ;
