IAN GOUGH is Professor of Social Policy at the University of Bath.

Can the needs of capital ever be reconciled with the needs of people?

To what extent can social policies bridge the gap between social rights and human welfare, and economic competitiveness in a global world?Building on previous writings on political economy and human need, this text aims to throw new light on these perennial questions in a series of penetrating essays.

The conclusion is upbeat: social policy still has the potential to narrow (though never close) the gap between the drive of capital and the universal needs of people.
