The welfare state – for whom?


Who is the principal beneficiary of the welfare state? This issue was discussed during the dispute hosted by “Students for Liberty” an international non-profit organization on January 11 at Ben Gurion University (in Hebrew).

Here is the introductory speech by Ilia Zatcovetsky who asserted, that the real (principal) beneficiaries of the Welfare state are social bureaucrats and allied politicians.

For a detailed explanation of this assertion (in Hebrew) see our book Socializm Haziri (Pig Socialism) just published by Kineret Zmora-Bitan Dvir Publishers.
