The welfare state has, generally speaking, become synonymous with the synthesis of a market economy and active government that characterises both 'Western' and 'emergent' societies today. Yet there is little agreement among the many who operate and observe public social policy – politicians, civil servants, trade union leaders, social scientists, journalists, the public at large – about how the welfare state could or should be defined in more precise terms.
