Abstract

This essay will critically evaluate positions that have emerged in the literature in favor of the welfare state. The downsizing of the welfare state, which would, inter alia, to reduce government spending, provide greater scope for the free market. The transition from a welfare system to a workfare increase the efficiency of the whole system. To this end, we present a reasoned survey of the literature that has sought to highlight the benefits of a limited size of the State, which are assigned duties by "night watchman".
