Is USA's social model Anglo-Saxon or its own?
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)
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. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 07:55, 13 November 2009 (UTC)
Whole thing reads like some sort of libertarian propaganda. I'll do some cleaning up. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 08:10, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
There is no concept called a "social model" to describe a country's political economy and value system. The subject matter of this article is actually the "social welfare model" since it describes the social policies and welfare philosophies of major developed capitalist countries. I propose moving the article from "Social model" to "Social welfare model". -Battlecry 06:34, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
shouldn't subsistence level be at the top, instead of boring readers with tautologies?
