In this book the author contends that in every area of public policy in the 1980s, the individualist solution to problems has been pursued and the collectivist solution ignored, whether in health care, housing, industry or education. Rentoul argues that it is a policy with serious flaws. First, because there are large sections of the community to whom economic freedom through shareholding is not available and that for the poor the alternative to State provision of housing, health care, social security benefits and education is no provision. Second, even traditional Conservative supporters react against these policies as, he argues, there is still a balance between individual material gain and a recognition that there must be a responsibility for the less well off. Using data from opinion polls, this book analyzes what the voters say about these issues and assesses the forces at work in domestic politics.
