5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume presents a wealth of evidence in support of vouchers, describing programs in the United States as well as voucher-like systems in other countries. The author recounts the success of a voucher system for higher education (the GI Bill) and cites functioning voucher programs for housing and daycare. He establishes that the contest surrounding vouchers is incorrectly seen as a struggle over public or private control of education. Instead, the political dialogue should be concerned with whether democracy is more likely to thrive where there is diversity fostered by choices. If we blot out the distinctive features of subgroups within the United States, Cobb warns, we will destroy an important source of national strength. Even if supporting community poses a risk of too much diversity, he finds that a risk worth taking." "Cobb uses factual case studies to show how vouchers can enable poor families to help themselves. Even without a voucher plan, a surprising number of low-income families already make use of nonpublic schools. Desperate to get a child out of a debilitating public-school environment, a family living below the poverty line may forgo free schooling and choose instead a school where tuition must be paid - a heroic act, he observes, entirely unrecognized by those who attack vouchers as elitist and contrary to democratic principles. Cobb also describes how vouchers will offer racial and ethnic minorities the option of supporting integrated schools or of establishing separate schools in which to develop their own community leadership. If you think of vouchers as subsidies for the rich, this book will change your mind." "The author's deep belief in the potential of choice to build self-governing communities, together with the practical evidence he assembles in support of vouchers, will give readers hope for the future of our schools and our society."--Jacket

The roads aren't free : estimating the full social cost of driving and the effects of accurate pricing by Clifford W Cobb( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rise of the car culture has caused environmental, social, economic, and political damage. The reason is quite simple: private vehicles have not had to pay their own way. A revenue-neutral tax shift that raised the price of driving and other socially damaging behavior while lowering taxes on productive effort would have important impacts on these problems. Such a policy would, for example, undoubtedly affect urban transportation choices. It would influence how much people drive and the kinds of cars they use, where they choose to live in relation to their jobs, and their willingness to use public transit. The purpose of this paper is to explore these potential effects. The paper estimates the full social cost of driving above and beyond the amount motorists pay today. Specifically, it estimates the amount of a gasoline tax that would be needed to compensate for that social cost, and it projects the effects of the increased price of gasoline on vehicle use, fuel efficiency, urban form, transit use, carpooling, vanpooling, and telecommuting
