Lewis, Jane (2005) Carework: are care accounts the answer? In: Paxton, Will, White, Stuart and Maxwell, Dominic, (eds.) The Citizen's Stake. Bristol Policy Press, Bristol, UK, pp. 151-164. ISBN 9781861346995

In this collection of 12 articles, contributors describe how supplying UK citizens upon maturity with a substantial capital grant would not only reduce inequity but also encourage market economies. They propose financing this "citizen's stake" by reforming the inheritance tax, using stakeholder trusts to reclaim common assets, and reform land taxes, but also question how far such reforms and the grants they fund should go. They examine attitudes of young people toward capital grants, the issues of responsible use, caretaker resource accounts for parents, finding a new balance of work and life, and determining the best way to implement the citizen's stake.
