Example text

The liberal welfare regime in the United States demarcates it from other welfare regimes because it intervenes minimally in the marketplace. In the United States state policies are often asynchronous with market policies, with the effect of sorting lives into different tracks. Other countries have developed welfare systems that, for historical reasons, redistribute resources in different ways to offset potential and real inequalities that stem from the market and from dislocations and derailing life events that can deflect the life course at the individual level and contribute to increased relative inequality.

But this characterization contradicts what life course and stratification theories have revealed about the process of social aging. Although cohort members may encounter similar institutional conditions and historical events as they age, they do not carry away the same experiences with these conditions and events. They do not share the same outcomes as a result of their experiences. They all do not end up in the same place. Over time cohort members lives' in industrial societies become differentiated.

For example, firm pensions are correlated with education and ocaapation, thereby producing stability in the effects of these attainments on income. But pension variation within education or occupational groups might well produce more diverse within-group outcomes in postretirement income than in preretirement earnings. The overall conclusion is that the role of status background characteristics in differentiating the population is relatively stable across the work and retirement phases of the life course.
