America's water and wastewater crisis : the role of private enterprise by Lewis D Solomon( Book )

In Water Sheikhs and Dam Builders, Francesca de Châtel discusses the problems and paradoxes of water resources in the Middle East and North Africa, exploring the past, present, and future of water in the region and exposing the roots of the current water crisis. The author provides a colorful portrait of a resource that is inextricably entwined with the history and future of the region and its peoples. Based on four years of research and travel from Iran to Libya and from Israel to Syria, the book combines interviews, historical anecdotes, and hard facts to reveal the complexity of this invaluable resource. The first four chapters focus on the historical and cultural legacy of water in the region and form the background to the second part of the book, which addresses various aspects of the current crisis. The last two chapters look at the future of water management, identifying a number of strategies that could lead to more sustainable water use.--Résumé de l'éditeur

Cycles of poverty and crime in America's inner cities by Lewis D Solomon( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2018 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite the best hopes of the past half century, black urban pathologies persist in America. The inner cities remain concentrations of the uneducated, unemployed, underemployed, and unemployable. Many fail to stay in school and others choose lives of drugs, violence, and crime. Most do not marry, leading to single-parent households and children without a father figure. The cycle repeats itself generation after generation. It is easy to argue that nothing works, given the policy failures of the past. For Lewis D. Solomon, fatalism is not acceptable. A complex and interrelated web of issues plague inner-city black males: joblessness; the failure of public education; crime, mass incarceration, and drugs; the collapse of married, two-parent families; and negative cultural messages. Rather than abandon the black urban underclass, Solomon presents strategies and programs to rebuild lives and revitalize America's inner cities. These approaches are neither government oriented nor dependent on federal intervention, and they are not futuristic. Focusing on rehabilitative efforts, Solomon describes workforce development, prisoner reentry, and the role of nonprofit organizations. Solomon's strategies focus on the need to improve the quality of America's workforce through building human capital at the socioeconomic bottom. The goal is to enable more people to fend for themselves, thereby weaning them from dependency on public sector handouts. Solomon shows a path forward for inner-city black males."--Provided by publisher
The privatization of space exploration : business, technology, law and policy by Lewis D Solomon( Book )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2017 in English and Spanish and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By unleashing entrepreneurial activity, Solomon writes, it may be possible to move the space program from the historic province of NASA and several giant aerospace firms and create a renaissance in human spaceflight. The private sector can energize the quest for space exploration and shape the race for the final frontier. Space entrepreneurs and private sector firms have already made significant innovations in space travel. They have plans for future tourism in space and safer shuttles. Solomon details current U.S. and international laws dealing with space use, settlement, and exploration. He then offers policy recommendations to facilitate privatization." "In the first decade of the twenty-first century, private enterprise is bubbling away, threatening to change the space landscape forever. Individuals are designing spacecraft, start-up companies are testing prototypes, and reservations are being taken for suborbital space flights. With for-profit enterprises carving out a new realm, it is entirely possible that space will one day be a sea of hotels and/or a repository of resources for big business. It is important that regulations are in place for this eventuality. The Privatization of Space Exploration is likely to become the standard reference work in a new field that has great importance, huge implications, and urgency for everyone."--Jacket

Tech billionaire$ : reshaping philanthropy in a quest for a better world by Lewis D Solomon( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2017 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the author notes, the traditional categories of business and philanthropy may no longer serve to meet the challenge of social problems. In the twenty-first century the tools and resources used to solve societal problems will be far more varied and mixed than previously. We now see interesting partnerships and new ways of thinking. The divide between profit and social good will narrow. If successful in using their money in innovative ways, government or for-profit business could scale up the catalytic efforts of the new philanthropists. This volume is a proactive, innovative guide to a new era, not just a new technique of monetary support."--Jacket

Detroit : three pathways to revitalization by Lewis D Solomon( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As America's most dysfunctional big city, Detroit faces urban decay, population losses, fractured neighborhoods with impoverished households, an uneducated, unskilled workforce, too few jobs, a shrinking tax base, budgetary shortfalls, and inadequate public schools. Looking to the city's future, Lewis D. Solomon focuses on pathways to revitalizing Detroit, while offering a cautiously optimistic viewpoint. Solomon urges an economic development strategy, one anchored in Detroit balancing its municipal and public school district's budgets, improving the academic performance of its public schools, rebuilding its tax base, and looking to the private sector to create jobs. He advocates an overlapping, tripartite political economy, one that builds on the foundation of an appropriately sized public sector and a for-profit private sector, with the latter fueling economic growth. Although he acknowledges that Detroit faces a long road to implementation, Solomon sketches a vision of a revitalized economic sector based on two key assets: vacant land and an unskilled labor force. The book is divided into four distinct parts. The first provides background and context, with a brief overview of the city's numerous challenges. The second examines Detroit's immediate efforts to overcome its fiscal crisis. It proposes ways Detroit can be put on the path to financial stability and sustainability. The third considers how Detroit can implement a new approach to job creation, one focused on the for-profit private sector, not the public sector. In the fourth and final part, Solomon argues that residents should pursue a strategy based on the actions of individuals and community groups rather than looking to large-scale projects."--Provided by publisher

From Athens to America : virtues and the formulation of public policy by Lewis D Solomon( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From Athens to America calls for reversing the withdrawal of character formation in the political domain, making the case for public sector involvement at the federal, state, and local levels. Lewis D. Solomon combines political science, philosophy, the Judeo-Christian tradition, and medical research to illustrate how we can formulate public policies that will enable all people to grow and develop into the healthy humans they are capable of being."--Jacket
Building an opportunity society : a realistic alternative to an entitlement state by Lewis D Solomon( Book )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Twenty-first-century US policymakers face a great challenge: How can federal government help more people achieve the American dream? Specifically, how can we provide greater opportunities for less-prosperous individuals, enabling them to succeed through hard work, on their merits, and take increased responsibility for their lives? Lewis D. Solomon sees this as the challenge of our time. He seeks to thread the fine public policy needle between social democratic efforts to perfect the world and those who negatively view public sector programs. Based on the premise that capitalism is not inherently unjust and defective, and American capitalism's structural features do not inexorability thwart opportunity, Building an Opportunity Society offers the possibility of more limited, carefully structured, cost-effective, empirically verified federal policies and programs. Solomon first provides the background and context of many existing domestic challenges and problems that the current and proposed federal policies and programs seek to address. He then analyses the federal safety net that keeps Americans from poverty and helps reduce income inequality. Finally, he presents a lifecycle analysis of current federal policies and programs, preventive and remedial, designed as part of the Entitlement State, but if restructured could facilitate the building of an Opportunity Society. Solomon challenges policymakers to take a fresh look at how best to achieve society's goals for all citizens."--Provided by publisher
