Imagine you are abroad and a local person you meet asks you to tell them about American Social Welfare.
- Give a brief description of our social welfare system (How is it structured, who does it serve, how is it funded?)
- Identify its strengths and weaknesses and point to evidence as to why you identify as such.
- What values or principles does it seek to embrace and reinforce and how does it do this?
- How effective is it at meeting needs? – support your conclusions with evidence from your readings and other materials introduced in class.
