Analysis : the profit motive.
About this work
Julian Le Grand asks 'Whether we are fundamentally selfish or altruistic?' With the growth of the welfare state and public funding it is vital to consider how, and on whom, public money should be spent. Frank Field has a limited belief in human altruism, seeing the rational power of self-interest as more important and thinks the benefits system is pernicious. Norman Barry considers the effect of welfare cuts in USA. Bruno Fry discusses altruism in blood donations in Switzerland. Prof Hilary Land considers the opportunity cost of caring for relatives.
