Family, market and community: Equity and efficiency in social policy; Social Policy Studies No.21
The report concentrates on OECD countries social policy, by trying to find answers to some important questions such as: How can labor market and social exclusion be tackled? How can we help those with low skills to get jobs and generate incomes to meet the needs of their families? How can we broaden the sources of income for those who are retired and ensure that those requiring long-term care services receive the right package of care? This report examines new policy strategies intended to protect people against distress over the life cycle. These strategies need to be equitable while promoting economic efficiency.
