This report brings together the findings of research projects about the nature, origins and consequences of variations in self-esteem among young people. It considers the potential role of self-esteem in intervention with vulnerable young people and examines the nature of self-esteem. It explores to what extent self-esteem is a quality that some individuals possess more of than others and whether it is a state that fluctuates. The report also highlights the difficulties in relation to measuring changes in self-esteem and how it can be modified through interventions. Most notably, this report outlines what is known about self-esteem and the consequences of high versus low self-esteem, recognising that high self-esteem does not necessarily have only positive outcomes.

Twenty-first-century US policymakers face a great challenge: How can federal government help more people achieve the American dream? Specifically, how can we provide greater opportunities for less-prosperous individuals, enabling them to succeed through hard work, on their merits, and take increased responsibility for their lives? Lewis D. Solomon sees this as the challenge of our time. He seeks to thread the fine public policy needle between social democratic efforts to perfect the world and those who negatively view public sector programs. Based on the premise that capitalism is not inherently unjust and defective, and American capitalism’s structural features do not inexorability thwart opportunity, Building an Opportunity Society offers the possibility of more limited, carefully structured, cost-effective, empirically verified federal policies and programs. Solomon first provides the background and context of many existing domestic challenges and problems that the current and proposed federal policies and programs seek to address. He then analyzes the federal safety net that keeps Americans from poverty and helps reduce income inequality. Finally, he presents a lifecycle analysis of current federal policies and programs, preventive and remedial, designed as part of the Entitlement State, but if restructured could facilitate the building of an Opportunity Society. Solomon challenges policymakers to take a fresh look at how best to achieve society’s goals for all citizens.
