Abstract:

Global economic competition is lowering economic expectations in the developed world, just as it is further improverishing less developed countries. The end of the welfare state - in all its various incarnations from China to the UK and North America - is a key element of globalization. Lost Ground: Welfare Reform, Poverty, and Beyond analyzses U.S. welfare reform in the context of larger political shifts, including the end of the family wage, the sexual revolution, and the rise of black liberation, feminism, and multiculturalism. The core messags embodied in welfare reform are ones that speak powerfully and frighteningly to the questions of who we are as a nation and what we think about women, people of color, poor and near-poor families. [The contributors to Lost Ground argue that] if society truly valued all the work of "single moms," then it would have the best chance of taking care of all families, and of both reducing economic inequality and recognizing the caregiving work that is, and must be, done for society to thrive.
