   schema:description "Egalitarians claim, for instance, that markets are unfair and that we must have redistributive policies to produce "social justice." This reasoning supposedly justifies the two-thirds of federal spending that simply robs Peter to pay Paul. We are stealing from each other. Browning's research and trenchant analysis show that: -Almost all U.S. citizens are harmed by the welfare state--even many of its apparent beneficiaries.-Welfare-state policies have large hidden costs which all told have reduced the average income of Americans by about 25 percent.-There is much less inequality and poverty than is commonly believed.-Most taxpayers will receive less back from Social Security than they put in. Provocative? Indeed. But such conclusions result from the most thorough going economic analysis of the modern welfare state yet written. Written for a general audience, Stealing from Each Other covers everything informed citizens need to know about inequality, poverty, welfare, Social Security, taxation, and the true costs of government redistributive policies."@en ;
