Social Welfare Policy

I have years of experience teaching and studying social welfare policy.  When I took my first courses in social welfare policy, much of the industrial world was in the beginning of a transition from late industrialization to an information economy.  Over the past 40 years, you can track the effects of this transition.  Much of our social welfare policy reflects the needs of the industrial society.  Some of my work, over the past twenty years, has  focused on the needed changes that social welfare policy will have to make to be relevant in our future.
