Why is the welfare system failing to work for so many people? This book examines the problems with the current welfare system and proposes reforms to create a smarter, smaller system that helps people improve their lives through rewarding work.

  • Presents a unique analysis of America's welfare programs and uses real-life examples to show how the current system forces enrollees to stay underemployed or unemployed
  • Offers a well-researched perspective on the relationship between work and happiness and why work is necessary for a happy life
  • Presents a new angle on welfare's shortcomings by focusing on the opinions of more than 100 welfare beneficiaries
  • Provides a variety of recommendations for welfare reform, such as creating wage subsidies for low-income workers, increasing apprenticeships, privatizing welfare, and fixing the Earned Income Tax Credit, among others
