dc.description.abstractSocial welfare policy helps determine how people live. "Social welfare" is a broad term which describes systems of allocations in any society in which benefits are distributed to individuals and communities so that they might attain a certain standard of living and/or quality of life. This structure of benefits and their distribution is an intensely political predicament, for there is often great disagreement about why anything should be allocated, what it is that is allocated, who the recipients ought to be, how generous the allocation ought to be, who should do the allocating, and how it might be financed.en_US
