Social Policy and the Poor

By Gary Rubin

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1985

This a background paper prepared for the deliberations of the Social Policy Task Force of the American Jewish Committee. The author states that when we consider social policy, we must confront the question of what we mean by social responsibility, because the policies we adopt reflect our values as a nation. It entails a fundamental exploration of the ties that bind Americans into one society. Thus, the social policy the nation espouses will reveal much about this country's collective character.
