Their payoff is often a long time in the future, so their effectiveness is often difficult to evaluate. They are not cheap: to make sure that no one slips through the net, preventive programmes usually have to be applicable to everyone, and that can cost. Also, most such policies overlap the responsibilities of different government departments. The rhetoric of joined-up government has to be translated into reality. Moreover, many preventive measures have as bad a track record as some curative measures in terms of their effectiveness in curbing poverty and inequality.

But a ‘preventive’ welfare state that ensures that as few of these problems as possible arise in the first place is better still (compare Goodin, this volume). However, preventive measures are not an easy alternative. Their payoff is often a long time in the future, so their effectiveness is often difficult to evaluate. They are not cheap: to make sure that no one slips through the net, preventive programmes usually have to be applicable to everyone, and that can cost. Also, most such policies overlap the responsibilities of different government departments.

But it also needs to devise a longer-term strategy for spreading opportunities more widely and so heading off poverty before it occurs. A scheme such as the one we propose here could form a crucial part of such a plan. The idea that every 18 year old could receive £10,000 from the state could become the cutting edge of a wider ambition to increase opportunity and reduce privilege through capital distribution. The key is to link this potentially popular spending proposal with reforms to a hitherto unpopular and inefficient tax – inheritance tax.
