From the Publisher
A very rare and unique book December 15, 2007
By Future Watch Writer
 Many Americans think that their government is "too big". In reality it is the smallest in the developed world in terms of its share of the economy.This is a very rare book in so far as it compares different approachs to social welfare in the developed world. America's record here is not inspiring. It the only nation that does not have national health insurance with a truly appalling 47 million people with no health insurance.

People should read this book to get a detailed understanding of social policy.
