The book takes a look at social expenditure in affluent
democracies in times of fiscal austerity. The study analyzes
expenditure changes in nine social policy areas between
1980 – 2010, from an intra-cabinet perspective by
considering the partisan affiliation of responsible spending
ministers and effects of budgeting reforms.

Thus, the analysis contributes to the question of whether
parties or institutions matter.
