Fiscal containment of local and state government by Rand Corporation( Book )

12 editions published between 1976 and 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report outlines the recent course of events in government spending, taxation, and employment at all three levels, and briefly reviews the fiscal limitation movement and its accomplishment. The report also includes the findings from a case study of the recent fiscal history of Los Angeles, which may help explain taxpayer discontent. Prevailing sentiment, as expressed through the American political system, appears to favor containment, if not contraction, in government. Along the road to this objective, some groups are likely to suffer as others gain. The report concludes with as assessment of the social costs and political effects that containment may engender. It is offered in the hope that, armed with foreknowledge, the nation can avoid causing needless harm through unreflective zeal

The Effects of the AIDS epidemic on traditional Medicaid populations( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines whether and how Medicaid eligibility for the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) affects the distribution of services and funds for women, children, and other covered groups. The authors used both quantitative and qualitative research methods to ascertain whether other groups covered by Medicaid, particularly women and children, were being adversely affected by the HIV epidemic. The qualitative analysis targeted eight states to obtain greater detail on the effects of the acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) epidemic on Medicaid systems generally and on non-AIDS Medicaid-eligible groups in particular. The results suggest that there were no observable adverse effects on the traditional Medicaid populations because of the HIV epidemic through 1989. As more poor people become ill with HIV diseases, and the AIDS caseload as a whole continues to survive beyond the limits of private insurance plans, demands on the Medicaid program will grow. In the future, competition for Medicaid resources between AIDS patients and other beneficiaries could well occur

The economics of housing segregation by Anthony H Pascal( Book )

8 editions published between 1965 and 1967 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph attempts to separate the observed segregation of nonwhites in U.S. cities into that which is attributable to socio-economic differences between races and that which is attributable to prejudice. The results should have practical relevance where there is a desire to reduce segregation, and a choice must be made on the efficacy of, e.g., 'fair housing' laws versus policies designed to raise the relative income levels of nonwhites. The major hypothesis tested is that all observed residential segregation is socio-economic in character, i.e., is attributable to white/nonwhite differentials in income and wealth, family size and composition, and the job location of its working members. This hypothesis proved untenable and this conclusion was supported by supplementary tests. Neither could much of a case be made for voluntary segregation by nonwhites as an explanation of their residential pattern. (Author)
EBBF : a guide to installing equitable beneficiary-based finance in local government by Rand Corporation( Book )

3 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beneficiary charges are monies collected from the individual consumers of government services. An equitable beneficiary charge is one that minimizes adverse effects on the disadvantaged. The growing prominence of beneficiary charges in local government prompted a program of studies at RAND designed to explore the efficacy and equity of this method of financing public services. The present guide was prepared, with its summary of findings, as an aid for local governments that may contemplate adopting the equitable beneficiary-based finance (EBBF) approach. The body of this guide consists of questions and brief answers about EBBF. The aim is to lend practical assistance to local government officials and managers who are interested in exploring the promise of EBBF for their jurisdictions
AIDS-specific home and community-based waivers for the medicaid population by Peter D Jacobson( Book )

3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

State Medicaid agencies have several organizational options to provide cost-effective health care to the growing numbers of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) patients eligible for Medicaid. This report focuses on the AIDS-specific home- and community-based waiver option for AIDS patients, made available in 1985 as an amendment to Section 2176 of the 1981 Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act. Waivers exempt Medicaid programs from specific statutory and regulatory provisions if such exemptions can be shown to improve cost-effectiveness and delivery of services. The report presents an overview of the home- and community-based waiver program's purpose; the types of waivers for which states may apply; and the waiver application, reporting, and renewal processes. The authors present a review of the literature on the waiver program and identify related research efforts under way that will eventually add to our understanding of how Medicaid programs serve AIDS patients. They then describe the experience of current waiver states (California, Hawaii, New Mexico, New Jersey, Ohio, and South Carolina). The research suggests that there are several ways to make the waiver program even more attractive to Medicaid agencies, including easing the administration and reporting requirements of the waiver, increasing the program's flexibility, and relaxing the requirement that cost savings be demonstrated before a waiver can be granted
Exploring benefit-based finance for local government services : must user charges harm the disadvantaged? by Rand Corporation( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beneficiary charges--fees, permits, special assessments--constitute the fastest source of local government revenue. They promote efficiency in consumption and production and allocate fiscal burdens directly to users. Local jurisdictions surveyed report a wide variety of highly innovative practices. Vertical equity can be preserved through ad hoc price adjustments for target groups or neighborhoods or through comprehensive voucher plans. Considerable revenue might be raised from charges on such exemplary services as civil courts, paramedics, and street lighting, while the disadvantaged are still protected against disproportionate new fiscal burdens. Considerable analytic and political groundwork must precede the implementation of benefit-based finance systems."--Rand abstracts
Men and arms in the Middle East : the human factor in military modernization : a report by Anthony H Pascal( Book )

10 editions published in 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study assesses the contributions of improvements in the quality of manpower organization to the military effectiveness of certain Arab states- Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Iraq-plus Iran and Turkey. Military development in the first group directly affects the future of the Arab-Israeli balance, and the last two are interesting both because they may be modernization exemplars for their Arab neighbors and because they figure in other critical Middle East balances. Historically, the Israeli advantage has stemmed from its superiority in manpower and management. It has proven itself more advanced than its adversaries in both micro-competence-the operation and support of modern weapons-and macro-competence-the organization of men and weapons in the pursuit of military objectives. The project reported on here was motivated by several factors: The apparent improvement of Arab forces relative to Israeli forces in 1973 may have signaled a gradual convergence in competence between the two sides. The new weapons being introduced into the region have implications for the importance of micro-competence and macro-competence that differ from the past. Paths to military modernization adopted in non-Arab neighbor states in the Middle East may have influenced Arab military policies
Picking winners : industrial strategies for local economic development by Anthony H Pascal( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intended for local and federal economic development planners, the report is a composite and summary of a series of technical documents prepared by RAND for HUD on the causes and consequences of industrial specialization in local economies. It uses previous findings to build a methodology for selecting promising industrial targets--e.g., business services, corporate headquarters, tourism, durable and nondurable manufacturing--for individual metropolitan areas. Large new databases and computer modeling techniques make it possible to tailor industrial development strategies to local characteristics. One section details an approach for selecting the industries most likely to "take" in a particular economy, while a second section shows how to assess the ramifications of a given industrial strategy for total employment, central city fiscal and economic health, opportunities for disadvantaged workers, and local vulnerability to national business cycles

The Costs and financing of care for AIDS patients : results of a cohort study in Los Angeles by Rand Corporation( Book )

4 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The economic burden of the acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) epidemic and its distribution across payers impose major stresses on individual patients and on the health care system. These have been the subject of much concern; however, no standard methodology has been developed that specifically addresses these issues. This pilot study develops a systematic approach to assigning costs to inpatient and outpatient care for AIDS patients and to estimating shares accounted for by the various payers in the system. It demonstrates that a much broader spectrum of care expenses can be estimated by a combination of patient interviews and collection of data on charges from care providers
