Welfare State: Marshall believed capitalism was still evolving Two ways of thinking about welfare: Social Citizenship v. Safety Net paid into it and entitled to benefits v. there for those who need it, not necessarily middle class Universal (everyone entitled to it Social Security) v. Means Tested Programs (given to people who need it food stamps) Education: Became universal due to Child Labor Laws and Truancy Laws until age 16 (Obama discussed in State of the Union Address making high school mandatory through age 18/until graduation) Should college be free? Marshall believes education is a social entitlement and that working class in modern society might feel like they are not getting enough wages, etc, but they believe that their children are getting a fair opportunity due to education, so they won’t revolt Retirement: Provisions necessary to assist people after they retire or cannot work any longer Unemployment Insurance Disability Insurance Health Insurance Housing: Provide subsidized housing, public housing, homeless shelters, etc Poverty Protection: To what extent is inequality reduced through social citizenship and safety net?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
