Changes in Public Opinion and the American Welfare State
Greg M. Shaw analyzes the relationship between American public opinion and several redistributive programs from the beginning of the 1990s to the present. He concludes that the recent political success of these programs has more to do with the workforce attachment of the recipients and the nature of the assistance—cash versus in-kind—than it does with means testing.
