Carnegie Mellon University and Flinders University Invites you and your colleagues to attend a lecture by Dr David Stoesz U.S. Expert in Social Welfare issues Distinguished Chair in Applied Public Policy (Australia)
The industrial era Welfare State is confronted with challenges for which it is unprepared:rising economic inequality, increasing capital flight, bureaucratic inertia, diminished opportunities for marginalized citizens, and expanding social markets for low income households.
Coupled with these are maximized public debt and an unwillingness to by Governments to increase taxes, resulting in reduced international competitiveness and adverse social outcomes such as diminishing upward mobility, intransigent poverty, social isolation, increased antisocial behavior. All of which have consequences for the social fabric of society.
