You hear all the time from conservations in the U.S. about our "liberal socialist welfare state" and how regardless of how many poor people we have we are still better than everyone else. Thanks to Kevin Drum here is an interesting article on Social Spending and Poverty by Lane Kenworthy. In spite of what you hear from the Master of the Universe and other elitists the U.S. doesn't really compare so well with countries such as Denmark and Sweden when it comes to social spending. Kenworthy's post is worth a read as he is a genuine expert in the field.
