This classic book serves as a starting point for any serious discussion of welfare reform. Losing Ground argues that the ambitious social programs of the1960s and 1970s actually made matters worse for its supposed beneficiaries, the poor and minorities. Charles Murray startled readers by recommending that we abolish welfare reform, but his position launched a debate culminating in President Clinton's proposal to end welfare as we know it.”
There's no better proof of the adage that ideas have consequences than Charles Murray's Losing Ground: in its argument, and in the fact that it changed the world.”
One of the pivotal books around which American history turned.”
One of the outstanding works of the pioneering era of conservative thought.”
