Description - Social Policy in Canada by Ernie Lightman

Social Policy in Canada provides and important and timely examination of the past, present, and future of Canadian social policy. In particular, Lightman looks closely at how social benefits are allocated, and explains in detail the mechanisms and tools of income transfer and redistribution that are central to all aspects of social policy. What makes the book unique is its central organizing premise: not merely that social policy should be understood in juxtaposition to economic policy, but that economic policy is in fact a subset of social policy. The result is a comprehensive overview of key issues in the realm of social policy that highlights commonalities and differences in such pivotal areas as privatization, user fees, and universality.
