Full Employment in a Free Society
Full Employment in a Free Society
By William H. Beveridge
Norton, 1945, 429 pp

In a sense this is a sequel to the famous Beveridge Report, though unlike the latter it is not an official document, being aimed rather at the intelligent citizenry of Britain. In it Sir William sets forth the manner in which enforced idleness can be abolished. His prescription includes considerable state intervention in the economic process.
