Robert H. Haveman describes the increases in social welfare expenditures which can be attributed to the Great Society's War on Poverty, and estimates what the impact of this increased social spending was on the nonpoor. Haveman concludes that the costs to the nonpoor have been relatively small, which suggests why this group has not supported massive retrenchment of social policies in the 1980s.
