An important contribution to the debates surrounding the evolution of the European welfare state model, this volume investigates the role that “ideational leadership” has played in the passing of structural reforms in the change-resistant German welfare state. Based on in-depth case studies of individual reforms in health care, pensions, and unemployment insurance since the early 1990s, Stiller illuminates the ways in which Germany has made the transition from its Bismarckian past to a hybrid welfare state....
The 1996 fed. welfare law de-linked eligibility for Medicaid (Medi-Cal in Calif.) from the receipt of cash assist. Congress required states to provide Medicaid coverage to recipients of state programs funded under the Temporary Assist. for Needy Families block grant, as well as any individuals who would have been eligible for AFDC, the former cash assist. program. Individuals no longer need to receive cash assist. in order to qualify for Medi-Cal. This paper examines Medi-Cal enrollment trends in light of the substantial drop in welfare caseloads in recent years.

Academic and policy interest in the U.S. welfare system has increased dramatically
over the past 15 years, an interest that has accelerated and is currently
at an all-time high. Beginning in the late 1980s with welfare reform initiatives in
a few states around the country and continuing in the first half of the 1990s as
more states made changes in their income support programs, welfare reform
culminated at the federal level with the passage of the Personal Responsibility
and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) in 1996.

Government size has attracted much scholarly attention. Political economists
have considered large public expenditures a product of leftist rule and an ex-
pression of a stronger representation of labor interest. Although the size of the
government has become the most important policy difference between the left
and the right in postwar politics, the formation of the government’s funding
base has not been explored. Junko Kato ﬁnds that the differentiation of tax rev-
enue structure is path-dependent upon the shift to regressive taxation.
Over the past 20 years, with the reform policy called Doi Moi comprehensively applied to the economy, Vietnam has achieved great results in her economic development process. High rate of economic growth with average of 7-8% per annum sustained for almost nearly two decades has contributed to considerable increase in per capita income, from 180 USD in early 1990s to nearly 1,200 USD in 2010.

In this paper we argue that religion and welfare state spending are substitute mecha-
nisms that insure individuals against adverse life events. As a result, individuals who
are religious will prefer lower levels of social insurance provision than will individuals
who are secular, and countries that are more religious on average will have lower levels
of welfare state spending.
This book examines how professionals practising in various health and welfare
settings go about the ordinary, but complicated, business of making sense
of the symptoms and troubles with which their patients or clients present.
Our motivations for writing the book are varied, but are the result of our
conversations with each other about the problem of judgement in clinical
practice, which have taken place over many years of professional, academic
and research collaboration.
