This concluding chapter points to the many unresolved issues and tensions that remain for welfare states in the future. It begins by reviewing the preceding discussion, which covers some theoretical perspectives on care work; the commodification of caregiving relationships through the introduction of cash payments of different types for work that might otherwise have been performed on an unpaid basis by families; and the shift from services to cash allowances and budgets. The chapter then identifies the new tensions in managing the relationships between cash and care, caused by changes in the roles of welfare states and actual or assumed changes in the responsibilities of individuals and families.
