The United States in the 1980s by Peter Duignan( Book )

30 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and Catalan and held by 1,547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in The United States in the 1980s, written by a group of renowned and widely respected specialists, are a major contribution to a balanced discussion of the choices that lie ahead. The authors analyze the central issues, describe the policy options open to the country, and recommend specific courses of action to deal with or mitigate the problems confronting the United States--in recognition of the fact that the major problems of the new decade "are interrelated, that no problem can be resolved in isolation, and that different perspectives can contribute to a clearer and more balanced understanding of the problems that are often viewed as separate from one another." The United States in 1980s will not provide comfort or reassurance for pessimists or optimists. On the contrary, by stressing that there are realistic limits to America's ability to solve all problems--domestic and international--the essays offer guidance for sensible solutions and identify the solid base of strength upon which the United States can build in the new decade
Red flag over Hong Kong by Bruce Bueno de Mesquita( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Such is the dire prophecy of Bruce Bueno de Mesquita, David Newman, and Alvin Rabushka, whose Red Flag over Hong Kong casts a cold eye on the future prospects of "the world's best example of the free-market economy, working as textbooks say it should." Applying to that unknown future a dynamic model of decision making that rests on the collection of data from a wide range of expert observers, the authors boldly seek to quantify human behavior and so derive a precise and reliable early forecast of Hong Kong's destiny at the hands of its communist masters

Fixing Russia's banks : a proposal for growth by Mikhail S Bernstam( )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fixing Russia's Banks documents how Russia's financial system is built on what Michael S. Bernstam and Alvin Rabushka call ersatz banks. These inferior imitation banks have served largely as tools of the government to redistribute public funds to favored firms. The highly vaunted achievements of privatization, removal of price controls, and foreign trade liberalization have failed to produce growth because of a lack of private financing. National income has declined nearly 40 percent since 1992, with no recovery in sight. Failing to fix Russia's banks risks further economic stagnation or decline and financial catastrophe. Bernstam and Rabushka's bold, intriguing, provocative proposal - resting on an elaborate strategy of debt-for-equity swaps - would fix the banks, reduce government debt, strengthen the independence of the Central Bank, and lay a solid foundation for sustained economic growth

Fairness and efficiency in the flat tax by Robert E Hall( )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A tax form the size of a postcard? That would be one result of Robert E. Hall and Alvin Rabushka's flat tax proposal. This idea, first suggested by the authors in 1982, is now the subject of wide-spread discussion in both popular and academic circles. In this up-to-date volume, the authors argue that a flat tax of 19 percent would raise the same revenue as the present income tax, while fundamentally redesigning our system of taxation to encourage savings and investment
