The study reviews the social welfare state, its historical value, contemporaneity, and sense of urgency. The author speaks with a skeptical person, and each of the chapters consist of objections to answers or problems he brings up. Kerstenetzky creates a boundary for the concept of social welfare state, discusses the relationship between development and well-being, and questions that this form of state might be in the middle of a crisis. On the contrary, he states the resistance of welfare in developed countries and analyzes its expansion in Latin America. In the last part of the book, he examines a specific case: Brazil.
