Is USA's social model Anglo-Saxon or its own?[edit]

I guess the USA is characterised as Anglo-Saxon but it is not mentioned in the text except that the welfare state is smaller. I would like to see a clarification on that point! --John Ericson 14:15, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

USA is removed from text so this is solved. --John Ericson (talk) 17:39, 10 April 2011 (UTC)

NPOV dispute[edit]

The majority of this article (without citations) paints social spending as wealth redistribution to the poor, while making the case that a low-tax, small-government ideology is superior. It reads that lowering taxes is better for important things, while high taxes primarily helps people who don't work. It then makes a reference to "recent studies" (without citing them) to show evidence that social spending led to vast unemployment in France. These are Ron Paul style talking points. 94.222.176.172 (talk) 07:55, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

Whole thing reads like some sort of libertarian propaganda. I'll do some cleaning up. 88.193.107.106 (talk) 08:10, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
