Welfare and Distribution (continued)
So far in my discussion of welfare and distribution my main preoccupations have been with the growth of production per head as the main hope of diminution of poverty and with the mitigation of inequality by the instrumentality of competition and the tax system. But this is not the end of the subject. It should be clear that the uses to which the proceeds of taxation are put must play an important role in the determination of the general welfare. These include the increase of equality of opportunity, the relief of need and the provision of indiscriminate benefit. The main principles involved will be the subject of this chapter.
