Welfare as government intervention
Chapter 7 in A Modern Guide to State Intervention, 2019, pp 164-175 from Edward Elgar Publishing
Niechoj analyses the emergence of the modern welfare state - based on the writings of Marx and Polanyi - as a response to the evolution of a market society, and describes the provision of welfare as a collective action problem which is solved by a state that takes responsibility for welfare. The author focuses then on the character of welfare as interventionism and discusses and weighs liberal arguments against welfare.
