Rethinking federalism : block grants and federal, state, and local responsibilities by Claude E Barfield( Book )

14 editions published between 1981 and 1982 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study describes the history and the current operation of the federal grant system and suggests model provisions for legislation authorizing block grants. It also describes the political consequences of the Reagan proposals, particularly the challenge these proposals present to special interest groups and to congressional working arrangements and relationships. The concluding chapter presents a framework for a broader revision of responsibilities. The federal government would assume policy and financial responsibility for the welfare system and for the provision of national health insurance. At the same time, it would transfer to state and local governments programs such as education, transportation, community and economic development, social services, law enforcement, and the environment

Science policy from Ford to Reagan : change and continuity by Claude E Barfield( Book )

10 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first monograph to analyze and compare the federal science policies under the most recent administrations--those of Presidents Ford, Carter, and Reagan. It focuses on four areas of research: basic research, defense R & D, energy R & D, and space R & D. In pursuing new goals for the federal science policy, the author states, the Reagan administration has: more sharply demarcated the roles of the federal government and the private sector, substantially curtailing support for demonstration and commercialization projects -- relied on indirect incentives to foster industrial innovation, dismantling programs of direct government intervention undertaken by the Carter administration dramatically revised priorities, allocating more than 60 percent of federal R & D support to defense and 66 percent of energy R & D support to nuclear programs. Despite these far-reaching changes, the administration has reaffirmed the importance of science to the advancement of national goals and the need for the federal government to support basic research. The concluding chapter sets forth five policy recommendations that build on areas of consensus in the three administrations and address emerging issues

Industry, services, and agriculture : the United States faces a united Europe by Claude E Barfield( Book )

10 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1985, the European Community began creating a far-reaching design for regional integration. This single market plan called for European market barriers to fall, a unified market of over 320 million consumers to emerge, goods and capital to flow across national borders, business to benefits from new market opportunities, and other dramatic economic gains to be achieved. But will all go according to plan? Troubling issues remain to be defined in practice. The European and American authors of the chapters in this volume temper enthusiasm with skepticism as they take a closer look at these issues in the context of a number of key economic areas
Tiger by the tail : China and the World Trade Organization by Mark A Groombridge( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book Mark Groombridge and Claude Barfield focus on fundamental economic issues that need resolution before China can become a respected member of the WTO. The events of the spring of 1999 bolster their argument that the real challenges involve China's "transparency" problem: the need to create a legal and administrative apparatus to facilitate the resolution of international commercial disputes. Noble intentions and high-sounding promises will not ensure successful Chinese membership in the WTO - if they are not bolstered by essential domestic reforms in China."--BOOK JACKET

International financial markets : harmonization versus competition by Claude E Barfield( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trade in financial services directly intersects both trade-related investment issues and questions regarding competition policy. Banking, securities markets, and insurance provide the indispensable infrastructure for foreign investment. For policy on competition, the corporate relations between financial services providers and other service and manufacturing concerns pose complicated issues for negotiators attempting to construct a multilateral regime. The goal of this volume is to set forth sector-specific recommendations to provide future international trade and investment rules for banking, securities, and insurance. Negotiators must strike the right balance between essential central rules and free competitive play
