Read The New Poverty ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook We are living in an age with unprecedented levels of poverty Who are the new poor And what can we do about it Today 13 million people are living in poverty in the UK According to a 2017 report 1 in 5 children live below the poverty line The new poor however are an even larger group than these official figures suggest They are often. This book is a testament to Osbornomics After six years of politically inspired austerity declining living standards and economic stagnation what does the country look like This book provides part of an answer to this uestionIt measures the state of the social fabric in the UK against the aspirations of the architects of the welfare state We are taken through what it was that the Beveridge Report set up and then the current perfoamance is measured against that standard We are found wanting There appears to be little in the way of compassion and empathy for our fellows who have fallen upon hard times and chapter after chapter of the book reads like a statement of our collective failure The author does force the point but he also has one to makeWhat has Osbornomics given us We are now a country of food banks because many no longer have the resources to feed themselves Osbornomics has given us a rather cruel and arbitrary system of financial support Universal Credit that is unbeleivably harsh in it s implementation We now have a country where people live on their mate s sofas Despite ploughing billions of pounds into banking bailouts we are unable to ensure that everyone has a place to live We are all proud of our NHS but the introduction of charges and the relocation of units to inaccessible places to save cost means that many are denied basic healthcare This is the Britain of Osbornomics broke hungry homeless and sickThere are many parts of the book that are a very uncomfortable read What stands out in my mind is the chapter on DIY dentistry Because many can t afford the user charges associated with dental treatment Poundland have introduced a range of DIY dental kits It makes you feel uncomfortable just to think about a DIT tooth extraction or lancing a gum abcess DIY It is not difficult to see why the country is angry and hostile especially towards immigrant communitiesThe book harks back to some of the standards of the past I was especially taken to be reminded of full employment as an economic policy objective We are now a long way from that Instead we have a world of zero hours contracts minimum wage jobs and too large a segment of the population living in acute financial uncertainty The book doesn t chart the rise of the precariat it is a snapshot in time rather than a tale of how it came about but the impacts of the precarious nature of life for many is well documentedThe author does not attribute this state of affairs to anyone He ought to Osbornomics is not the sole cause just the latest and most acute manifestation The situation ought to be attributed to the fact that we now live in a society where some people are doing rather well and some people are in a desperate situation Much of this can be attributed to the flawed implementation of policies of globalisation Globalisation serves sme people well and not others For the policy to work those doing well need to compensate those not doing well for their loss That hasn t happened Why Some ascribe it to the failure of the political class of all parties I am uite sympathetic to that ideaI would recommend this book as a means of getting in touch with those who you fail to understand It helped me to understand why a majority voted to leave the EU The conseuences may be dire Or they may not Either way what do they have to lose
