Income and Income Maintenance Policy
Author: Haim Barkai
April 04, 1986
The following chapter discusses several aspects of policy which derive from the analysis of income maintenance expenditures presented in the first part of this book.
This discussion comes under three headings: comments on the significance of the measures used for the purpose of quantifying the impact of social policies; the rising pattern of transfer payments and the need to reconsider policy; and an examination of the “package deals,” particularly their social aspects, leading to proposals for modifications of these policies.
This paper appears as a chapter in the Center’s annual publication, Changing Social Policy: Israel 1985-1986, and is available upon request.
