Governments throughout world are restructuring social and welfare provision to emphasize opportunity, aspiration and individual responsibility and to give a stronger role to competition, markets and consumer choice. The new approach rests on a logoic of individual rational action: people's choices are driven primarily by self-regarding considerations.
