Silent depression : the fate of the American dream by Wallace C Peterson( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 874 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the U.S. economy once again a top priority of policy makers, it is worth understanding that matters are worse than they seem. Output, the traditional "bottom-line" measure of the economy's health, has turned up. The recession of 1990-91 is over. But the tepid recovery leaves much to be desired. Digging deeper, longtime observer of the economy Wallace C. Peterson finds plenty of cause for alarm. Wages, family income, and productivity growth began a long, downward

The coming class war and how to avoid it : rebuilding the American middle class by Frederick R Strobel( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in English and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strobel and Peterson offer a clear, accessible analysis of the worsening distribution of income and wealth in America. In addressing the decline of the middle class, the authors determine not only that the middle class has continued to shrink but that the majority of economic benefits have become concentrated into fewer and fewer hands. There is a close analysis of the linkage between economic and political power, as well as the increasing inability of the growing lower and shrinking middle classes to voice their economic views in Washington. To prevent further class conflict in the coming quarter century, the authors outline strategic changes in policy, including a plan to strengthen social security

To insert some calm to the shrill debate and facts into the speculations and warnings, Peterson (economics, U. of Nebraska- Lincoln) sets out an account of what Social Security is, what the problems are, how they came about, and what solutions are being proposed.

Market power and the economy : industrial, corporate, governmental, and political aspects by Wallace C Peterson( Book )

14 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A situation in economics that is little short of scandalous is the almost total neglect by mainstream economics of the importance of power in economic affairs. Power in this context means the ability to bend market forces in one's favor, influencing and shaping key economic variables such as prices, wages, and other income determinants. As John Kenneth Galbraith as tutely observes: a dominant fact in economic life is the desire of people everywhere and in all circumstances to get control over their personal lives and their incomes-to escape from the "tyranny of the market." Power is the means to this end. Ever since Adam Smith, economists have been fascinated by and lavish in their praise for the workings of the market. All modern textbooks are built around Smithian ideas about markets and the way the "invisible hand" works through competition for society's better ment. Yet one can search nearly in vain through leading texts, under graduate and graduate alike, for any reference to market or economic power. This is the situation in spite of the fact that the drive for power, the urge to get control over one's income, permeates the economy as much as does competition. This is a scandal! For a discipline that claims for itself the mantle of a science-one which wants to be accorded the same respect given the natural sciences-it is almost incomprehensible that it should ignore a major force at work in the real economic world
Transfer spending, taxes, and the American welfare state by Wallace C Peterson( Book )

11 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1989 the federal government spent $1197 billion, a mind-boggling sum that is almost impossible to visualize. Since there were 248. 8 million people living in the United States in that year, the government spent an average of $4811 for every man, woman, and child in the nation. For a hypothetical family of four, federal spending in 1989 amounted to an average of$19,244. To put this sum in perspective, the money income of an American family averaged $35,270 in the same year. To finance spending $1197 billion, the government collected taxes from American citizens and residents in an amount of $1047 billion. Because of a shortfall between what it spent and what it took in taxes, the government had to borrow $150 billion, partly from individuals, but mostly from banks, insurance companies, and foreigners. How, where, and on whom did the federal government spend all this money? Since federal spending in 1989 totaled 23 cents in comparison to every dollar spent for the buying of goods and services, finding an answer to this question is not a trivial matter. Spending by Washington reaches into every nook and cranny of the economy, touching the lives and fortunes of almost everyone in the nation. Thus, answers to these questions are of more than academic interest

Research activity, product diversification, and product differentiation by small manufacturers in Nebraska by Campbell R McConnell( Book )

4 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an empirical study of the behavior of small manufacturing concerns with respect to technological research, product differentation, and product diversification. It seeks answers to questions such as these: What amount of research--formal and informal--is carried on by small manufacturing firms. What are the purposes of this research. How many products do small manufacturers produce. Why do some firms produce a large number of products while others concentrate on just one or a very small number. To what extent do small firms attempt to differentiate their products from those of rival firms. What techniques are used in seeking to differentiate. All of these are questions about which economists know relatively little. (Author)
