Another product of the welfare state experience is the growth of welfare dependency which is transferred from one generation to another. For over 25 years, evidence of this phenomenon was quietly, but firmly, repressed in the United States behind a façade presented by the welfare establishment, the sociological, psychological and economic scholars of poverty, and the social policy formulators. This myth was, for the most part, supported by the media (William Julius Wilson, 1985).
