Institutional view of social welfare
A view that emphasizes the preventive role of social welfare in modern industrial societies. View that the welfare of the individual is the responsibility of the social collective. The market will not, and cannot, meet the needs and aspirations of a people and, therefore, the optimal distribution of welfare can only be achieved by an acknowledgement that there is a significant role for a publicly-funded and organized system of programs and institutions.
