Due to government cuts, the benefits system is currently a hot topic. In this timely book, a Citizen’s Income (sometimes called a Basic Income) is defined as an unconditional, non-withdrawable income for every individual as a right of citizenship. This much-needed book, written by an experienced researcher and author, is the first for over a decade to analyse the social, economic and labour market advantages of a Citizen's Income in the UK. It demonstrates that it would be simple and cheap to administer, would reduce inequality, enhance individual freedom and would be good for the economy, social cohesion, families, and the employment market. It also contains international comparisons and links with broader issues around the meaning of poverty and inequality, making a valuable contribution to the debate around benefits. Accessibly written, this is essential reading for policy-makers, researchers, teachers, students, and anyone interested in the future of our society and our economy

Created during and after the Second World War, the British Welfare State seemed to promise welfare for all, but, in its original form, excluded millions of disabled people. This book examines attempts in the subsequent three decades to reverse this exclusion. It is the first to contextualise disability historically in the welfare state and under each government of the period. It looks at how disability policy and perceptions were slow to change as a welfare issue, which is very timely in today’s climate of austerity. It also provides the first major analysis of the Disablement Income Group, one of the most powerful pressure groups in the period and the 1972 Thalidomide campaign and its effect on the Heath government. Given the recent emergence of the history of disability in Britain as a major area of research, the book will be ideal for academics, students and activists seeking a better understanding of the topic.

This book is the first full-length treatment of the desirability and feasibility of implementing a citizen’s income (also known as a basic income). It tests for two different kinds of financial feasibility as well as for psychological, behavioral, administrative, and political viability, and then assesses how a citizen’s income might find its way through the policy process from proposal to implementation. Drawing on a wide variety of sources of evidence from around the world, this new book from the director of the Citizen’s Income Trust, UK, provides an essential foundation for policy and implementation debates. Governments, think tanks, economists, and public servants will find this thorough encompassing book indispensable to their consideration of the economic and social advantages and practicalities of a basic income.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Politik - Politische Theorie und Ideengeschichte, Note: 1,0, Helmut-Schmidt-Universität - Universität der Bundeswehr Hamburg, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Im Rahmen des Seminars „Parteien in der Weltgeschichte“ wurden verschiedene historische Gruppierungen bezüglich ihrer Zusammensetzung und Interessen untersucht. Ziel war es hierbei, festzustellen, ob diese Gruppierungen als Parteien bezeichnet werden konnten und wie sie Politik durchführten. Im Rahmen dieser Hausarbeit soll eben dies auf die Optimaten und Popularen Roms angewandt werden. Dazu hat sich Maik Voigt mit den Kapiteln 1 und 5, Stephan Janzyk mit dem Kapitel 2 und Jan Lübke mit den Kapiteln 3 und 4 auseinandergesetzt. Dabei wird speziell auf die Zeit der mittleren und späten römischen Republik von circa 287 bis 27 vor Christus eingegangen. Ziel soll es sein, einen möglichen Parteiencharakter beider Gruppierungen festzustellen. Dazu werden sowohl die beiden Gruppierungen an sich betrachtet, als auch ein Beispiel der politischen Erscheinungen der römischen Republik, dem Volkstribunal. Abschließend soll der Bürgerkrieg zwischen Marius und Sulla als jeweilige Vertreter der beiden Interessensgruppen untersucht werden, um zu schauen wohin die Konflikte führen konnten. Wie bereits erwähnt sind erste Ausprägungen der Gruppierungen in der mittleren römischen Republik erkennbar, jedoch findet sich die Blütezeit der Optimaten und Popularen in der späten römischen Republik. Aufgrund der unterschiedlichen historischen Datenerfassung ist es teilweise nur schwer möglich, die einzelnen Daten auszuwerten1 und eindeutig einer politischen Haltung oder Abstammung zu zuordnen2 [...] 1 als Beispiel stammen viele Schriften über die Popularen von Cicero, welcher selbst den Optimaten zuzurechnen ist 2 vgl. Thommen (1988) S. 22

Thomas Pogge’s book explains why so many of the wealthy believe that they have no responsibility for the elimination of poverty even though a degree of income transfer seems morally required. The theories of the wealthy are seemingly disconnected from poverty in other countries. Pogge dispatches with this illusion and suggests a realistic standard of global economic justice.
