Über diesen Titel


A wake-up call for America's economy from former Secretary of Commerce Peterson. Features a detailed action plan for ending deadlock of special interest groups, fighting for the interests of American society as a whole, stopping our downward spiral of declining living standards, and more.

From Booklist:

If at times this argument and proposal for balancing the federal budget and eliminating the federal deficit sounds familiar, it's because Peterson is president of the Concord Coalition, the fiscal responsibility organization whose principal spokesmen are former Senators Warren Rudman and Paul Tsongas. Yes, this is very largely the 1992 dark horse Democrat's program made concrete and specific. Like Tsongas, Peterson's the son of a Greek immigrant (n{?}e Petropoulos) who succeeded in this country and ensured the launching of his children's careers through hard work and cheerful frugality. With filial loyalty, Peterson valorizes those qualities and demonstrates--via citations from Jefferson, Hamilton, and Lincoln--how deeply they undergird the republic. Present mature generations must, he avers, guarantee their successors' future by learning to choose again, between such things as a public carte blanche for high-tech medicine to prolong the lives of the old and severely disabled on the one hand and--what is much cheaper and much more socially beneficial in the long run--preventive medicine for children and expectant and young mothers on the other; or, in a very different arena, between aircraft carriers and land-based strike forces. There are many other choices, much forthright cost-accounting and ledger-balancing, and even more appealing to family and community spirit in Peterson's blueprint for national solvency, an effort that ought to further energize at least the public conversation on federal budget reform--if not the presidential viability of a candidate who decides to run on Peterson's platform.
