Asset-based policies are becoming an increasingly important form of public and social policy globally. This sees individual assets - such as savings or housing--as crucial aspects of a new form of welfare provision emerging in countries such as the United States, Canada, Britain, Australia and New Zealand. In this book, the first of its kind, Rajiv Prabhakar provides a theoretical perspective on the emerging asset agenda as well as examining specific policies, including the British Child Trust Fund.
RAJIV PRABHAKAR is Economic and Social Research Council Fellow at the Center for Philosophy of Natural and Social Sciences at the London School of Economics, UK. He is the author of Stakeholding and New Labour and Rethinking Public Services.
