The federal budget : politics, policy, process by Allen Schick( Book )

39 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and held by 1,928 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This revised and significantly expanded edition of The Federal Budget concerns the politics and processes of federal budgeting and the policies that emerge from them. It describes how budgeting works at each stage of executive and legislative action - from preparation of the president's budget through the appropriation and expenditure of funds - and assesses the impact of budget rules on policy decisions. In addition to vital statistics and extracts from important documents, the book also features case studies that dramatize contemporary budgetary politics, providing readers with a "you are there" appreciation of how budgeting decisions are made in Washington."--Jacket

The budget puzzle : understanding federal spending by John F Cogan( Book )

10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the United States, the size and composition of the federal budget is arguably the most important single issue of the 1990's, yet most debates and commentaries on the subject are largely uninformed. Virtually no one - whether government official, member of Congress, journalist, or taxpayer - seems to understand how the budget is put together and what it means. This is hardly surprising, since the budget has become extraordinarily complicated. The structure of the budget reform act of 1911 has been maintained, with the changes of additional reforms (1974, 1986, and 1990) piled on top of it, while virtually nothing has been discarded. Most people are distressed at the enormous size of the federal deficit and perplexed because highly touted plans and agreements to bring the deficit down result in an even higher deficit. Why does this happen? Why is there a growing deficit amid cries of underfunding? Why is there general agreement on a format that has proved so misleading? This book comprises a series of essays about the federal budget - how and why it has grown so large, why most "deficit-reduction" measures are either shams or predestined to fail, and why understanding budget issues is so difficult. The authors offer a new perspective, a microbudgeting approach, which requires examining in detail how the federal government makes its budget decisions. Macrobudgeting, which is concerned with totals rather than parts, has prevailed for more than a generation in both Democratic and Republican administrations; the deficit-reduction drives of the 1980's, for example, failed because the parts added up to more than the targeted totals. By contrast, microbudgeting breaks the budget down into its basic elements, carefully reviews the assumptions underlying each program or account, and critically examines the methods by which savings are computed. Using this approach, the authors demonstrate that it is possible to understand the budget process and to make informed decisions on issues of public policy. Individual essays focus on such topics as: the changing Congressional budget processes that have been critically important in contributing to the federal budget deficits that have persisted since World War II; the origins, uses, and abuses of budget baselines; and the myth of the budget reductions of the Reagan presidency

Setting national priorities: the 1972 budget by Charles L Schultze( Book )

6 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book attempts to make the problem of budgetary choice at the federal level more intelligible by classifying, analyzing, and projecting into the future the components of the budget in a way which makes it possible to put together several comprehensive alternative budgets, each illustrating from a different view how the Federal Government could deal with national problems. The book first discusses domestic programs grouped into five major "strategies" or roles of the Federal Government: (1) affecting the distribution of income through taxes and transfer payments; (2) helping people buy such essential goods and services as housing, medical care, and higher education; (3) providing grants to State and local governments for specific programs; (4) investing in the physical environment; and (5) general revenue sharing. The book next analyzes the defense budget in terms of the cost and effectiveness of particular forces and weapon systems and in the context of alternative views about the world role of the United States and the mission of its armed forces abroad. Throughout the book current programs are compared with alternatives, and projections are made of the costs of each alternative. A final chapter presents several alternative budgetary futures which differ from each other in terms of budget size, tax structure, the split between domestic and defense programs, and the mix of domestic programs.
