How capitalistic is the Constitution? by Robert A Goldwin( Book )

10 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 985 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Second in a three-part series designed to help prepare the nation for a thoughtful observance of the Constitutional bicentennial, this publication contains seven essays on the topic of capitalism and the Constitution. "American Democracy and the Acquisitive Spirit" (Marc F. Plattner) supports the argument that the framers of the Constitution established an essentially capitalistic government. "Class Rule under the Constitution" (Edward S. Greenberg) analyzes how the Constitution has adjusted to changing circumstances and forms of capitalism. "The Constitution and Hamiltonian Capitalism" (Forrest McDonald) argues that the Constitution was not originally designed to establish capitalism but that constitutional government and capitalism became intertwined at the outset. "The Constitution, Capitalism, and the Need for Rationalized Regulation" (Walter Dean Burnham) looks at the nature of the link between the structure and functioning of the American political regime and the corresponding economic structure. In "The Constitution and the Protection of Capitalism" (Bernard H. Siegan), it is argued that the current judicial policy fails to substantially secure material liberties and runs contrary to the original intent of the Constitution. "Capitalism or Democracy" (Robert Lekachman) examines the conflict between political equality and economic opportunity. "The Constitution and the Spirit of Commerce" (Stephen Miller) looks at the "Federalist Papers" to interpret contemporary politics. (Lp)
How democratic is the Constitution? by Robert A Goldwin( Book )

11 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designed to help prepare the nation for a thoughtful observance of the Constitutional bicentennial, this publication contains seven essays on the topic of democracy and the Constitution. "Democracy and the Constitution" (Gordon S. Wood) looks at the popular and democratic rhetoric used to justify the federalist system in the late 1700'S. "Decent, Even Though Democratic" (Ann Stuart Diamond) considers James Madison's definition of a democratic constitution. "The Constitution as an Elitist Document" (Michael Parenti) argues that the framers of the Constitution sought to contain democracy rather than give it free rein. "Does the Constitution 'Secure These Rights'?" (Walter Berns) looks at how democracy has changed over time in the United States and what further advances in democracy might be made. "Democracy and the Citizen: Community, Dignity, and the Crisis of Contemporary Politics in America" (Wilson Carey McWilliams) argues that democracy requires community, civic dignity, and religion and that, in certain respects, the Constitution was more democratic in the past than it is today. "Deliberative Democracy: The Majority Principle in Republican Government" (Joseph M. Bessette) looks at the apparent contradiction between majority rule and constraints on the majority. "Conservatives, the Constitution, and the 'Spirit of Accommodation'" (Alfred F. Young) presents the view that the Constitution was the work of accommodating conservatives who drafted an essentially middle-of-the-road document that produced different responses among contemporaries of a democratic bent.

Do bureaucrats and policy analysts have a political role auxiliary and subordinate to elected officials, or do they really run things?

Do bureaucrats have so much control because they have usurped political power, or is the explanation to be found in our fundamental political principles, which tilt us toward the bureaucratic state?
