In the first half of this study, Sherraden provides a critical analysis of federal welfare policy, welfare theory, and reform debate. In the second, he proposes an asset-based policy that would create a system of incentives through "Individual Development Accounts" based on the concepts of savings, investment, and asset accumulation rather than the income, spending, and consumption that guide current policy.
