The Case For Universal Basic Services by Anna Coote and Andrew Percy

The Blurb On The Back:

The idea that health care and education should be provided as universal public services on the basis of need is widely accepted.  But why leave it there?  Why not expand it to more of life’s essentials?

Anna Coote and Andrew Percy argue that such a transformational expansion of public services is exactly what we need.  They show that expanding the principle of collective universal service provision to everyday essentials like transport, child care and housing is not only the best way of tackling many of our biggest problems: it’s also efficient, practical and affordable.

Anyone who cares about fighting for a fairer, greener and more democratic world should read this book.
