The article presents information about the June 1989 issue of the "Journal of Sociology and Social Welfare." Writer Ron bear's "What's Right With Welfare" was written because of a recurrent classroom experience. When asked to list advantages and disadvantages of the current welfare system, his students had no problems with criticism but could come up with nothing positive to say. Feeling that any reform should maximize strengths as well as correct weaknesses, he set out to assess the positive aspects of the existing system. Students were not the only skeptics. Writer Len Goodwin did some of the original studies on the relationship of work to income support. Since this theme persists in current reform efforts, his review of workfare research is essential to evaluating those efforts. Following the Background Section, editors have three articles that cover several ideological perspectives on Welfare Reform. Writer Nancy Rose gives people the view of Political Economy, writer David Congdon offers a new look at Keynesianism, and the writer David Stoesz argues for a new formulation entirely. He combines ideas from the NeoConservatives with some traditional Liberal notions.
