Making health reform work : the view from the states( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The nation's health care finance and delivery systems are already immensely complex and problem-ridden. Is it possible to achieve meaningful reforms without adopting new administrative strategies and structures that are equally complex? What role do the states now play in administering the nation's health care system? Is it possible to design administrative success into national health reform plans from the start?

Public service employment : a field evaluation by Richard P Nathan( Book )

12 editions published in 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A field study examined the Public Service Employment (PSE) Program's intergovernmental effects. Addressed during the study were such questions as whether the program creates jobs in local government, whether local governments give preference to disadvantaged persons, and what kinds of services are provided. To collect these data, a network of field researchers each devoted an average of 30 to 60 days observing the effects of PSE in a representative sample of jurisdictions that accounts for approximately 10 percent of PSE enrollees. Contrary to what others have said, designers of this study found that the PSE program has not resulted in the displacement of many local jobs by federally supported jobs. In addition, 86 PSE dollars out of 100 are stimulating the economy directly by providing salaries. While PSE was originally initiated to combat countercyclical unemployment, research indicates that in many jurisdictions the program also shows considerable potential for alleviating structural employment. Furthermore, PSE workers are providing many primary services that are important to local communities. Examination of PSE in the nonprofit sector suggests that while these organizations have a great potential for creating jobs, they do not achieve the targeting objectives of PSE as well as do local governments.

So you want to be in government? : handbook for appointed officials in America's governments by Richard P Nathan( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document, which is intended as a handbook for individuals who have been appointed to positions in United States (U.S.) governments, is a lengthy essay on understanding and fulfilling the responsibilities associated with accepting a position of leadership. The following are among the topics discussed in chapters 1-6: (1) joining the "governing class" (definition of the term "governing class," the U.S. system of government, the academic view, types of "inners" and "outers," the ethics of influence); (2) becoming and being a leader (selecting a political party, being political, demonstrating loyalty); (3) team building (B and A teams, subcabinets); (4) making policy (the budget process, the "planning-programming-budgeting" system, where new ideas originate); (5) policy implementation (implementation as exploration, advice for policy managers, strategies that work, and accountability); and (6) dealing with the media. Chapter 7 contains the following suggestions for appointed government officials: (1) remember that leaders are role models; (2) care about partnership; (3) always remember the hyperpluralism of the U.S. government and the great barrier reef of federalism, which can wreck voyages to accomplishment; (4) cultivate the press; (5) be careful about confidences; (6) be careful about jokes; (7) pace yourself; (8) be consistent; and (9) think about your future.
