Social Policy at Loughborough University. This level is set sufficiently high to
completely eliminate poverty (using a poverty line of 60 per cent of median
earnings) for working age families. Thus the system we are suggesting eradicates
another of Beveridge’s five Giant Evils, ‘want’ – at least to the extent that ‘want’
consists of low income.” – page 30.
