Description: Whilst the prevailing orthodoxy of the expenditure retrenchment
literature is that globalisation and neo-liberal ideas are leading
to a downsizing of the state, empirical research – basing its
conclusions on patterns of welfare state spending – does not
support such a view. This book brings a new perspective to bear by
looking at what has been happening to other areas of the state's
activity.
