Criticism of the welfare state would be more effective if it werebetter targeted. That is why we begin byclarifyingthe meaning ofthe welfare   state. We then distinguish  three dimensions of the welfare state and use them to show the extent of differences between welfare states. Next, we identify countries that appear to face the greatest challenges regarding the sustainability of their welfare states. We conclude with some remarks on how to make criticism of the overgrown and badly structured welfare state more effective.
