This study compared the modification impact of Macao’s social policy on its capitalist social structure with the modification impact of six welfare states’ social policies on each of their capitalist social structures. It found that Macao’s social policy had the lowest modification impact of all states considered, and that it did not appear to fit with the dominant welfare models used in the other six states. We suggest a new model for the case of Macao, and we discuss the implications of the research findings for social work practice.
