Abstract:
Modern social security programs began in the 1840s in Germany with an old-age insurance scheme. The idea then was to promote the German economy by enhancing the well being of retired workers. Even that long ago there was clear recognition that citizens’ welfare affects a nation’s wealth creation. The idea was slow to take hold though. The next plan was a national insurance program introduced in the United Kingdom in 1911. The Great Depression of 1929-41 was the strongest catalyst for social security programs. #Security #Development
