The Welfare State
The History of the Welfare State
The Welfare State originated in Germany during 19th century with the policies implemented by German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck.
Foundations of the Welfare State
The welfare system in the United States was created on the grounds that the market cannot provide goods and services universally.
Welfare reform has attempted many times to remove welfare altogether by promoting self-sufficiency, but has been unsuccessful in this regard thus far.
