    The welfare state discredits the very notion of punishment because the welfare state was founded to reduce, not to increase suffering. Even today, there is a seldom-questioned belief that criminal impulses will be eliminated by a big enough welfare state. Thus, the welfare state as built in Sweden (having eliminated need and greed) should have had little or no crime.

Gunnar Myrdal’s questions in An American Dilemma are rephrased with reference to Europe’s current dual.

In a volume consisting of nearly fifty newly-written chapters, a broad range of the world's leading scholars offer a comprehensive account of everything one needs to 1/5(1).
