Description

"[I]n the US, thanks to Gingrich and others like him, government has sought to increase individuals’ exposure to risk rather than to decrease it, typically under the mantra of increasing ‘choice’ or ‘freedom.’"

Review: Jacob Hacker -- The Great Risk Shift [More...]
"First, he looks at the various ways in which risk has increased over the last few decades... But what isn’t hard to trace back are the decisions made by policy makers to exacerbate these risks by aiding and abetting the transfer of risks to individuals rather than countering it. This is the second prong of Hacker’s argument."
