Economists call on Child Support Agency to "replace" dead beat Dads

Writing about web page http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/newsandevents/pressreleases/NE10000001540/

Researchers at the University of Warwick and the University of Kent are calling on the Child Support Agency (CSA) to replace "dead beat" Dads. Where fathers fail to pay a CSA assessment – The CSA itself should simply pay mothers the amount due. This would create a sharp financial incentive for the CSA itself to be more active in pinning down recalcitrant fathers. They would have to have new powers (and be prepared to use existing powers) to effect compliance and seek new effective powers such as mandatory withholding via the tax system.
