Introduction

Published in PFM, Vol. 2 No. 2

Developed countries in general and European countries in
particular devote a substantial share of national resources to income
redistribution programs that seek to alleviate and reduce poverty. This
Symposium contributes to the analysis of such programs. It presents three
papers written in a perspective that reflects European concerns with both
social policies and analytical rigor. In particular the papers deal with the
costs and consequences of anti-poverty programs no only in terms of the
effectiveness in achieving poverty reduction but also looking at other
impacts on welfare.
