Investing in children by C. Eugene Steuerle( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because of concerns over the different influences of the government budget on the rate of economic growth and the well-being of each succeeding generation, we chart U.S. federal spending on investment in total and for children from 1965 to 2017. Five major categories can be considered -- some more so than others -- to be investment or to have investment components: education and research, work supports, social supports, physical capital, and defense investment. Relative to GDP or domestic spending, total investment and investment in children -- under almost any definition -- fell over the 1965-2006 period, though with some recent rebounds. More important, projections of current policies show that overall government investment and especially investment in children are threatened to decline in relative and sometimes absolute importance, squeezed out mainly by faster, automatically growing programs that tend to favor consumption. These data raise the question of what relative priority the government should place on investment, and particularly investment in children. Other research, particularly on absolute and relative effectiveness of all programs, is necessary to answer that question
Kids' share 2007 : how children fare in the federal budget by Adam Carasso( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study reports on trends in federal spending on children from 1960 to 2017, looking across over 100 major federal programs, including tax credits and exemptions. Children's spending increasingly shifted from broad-based programs to programs targeting low-income or special needs children over the 1960 to 2006 period. Thirteen major programs enacted between 1960 and 2006, which include Medicaid, the earned income tax credit, and Food Stamps, comprised 65 percent of federal spending on children in 2006. Overall, federal children's spending increased in real terms from $53 billion in 1960 to $333 billion in 2006, or from 1.9 to 2.6 percent of GDP. Yet as a share of federal domestic spending, children's spending declined from 20.1 to 15.4 percent. Meanwhile, spending on the automatically growing, non-child portions of Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, nearly quadrupled from 2.0 to 7.6 percent of GDP ($58 billion to $993 billion) over the same time period. Over the next ten years, children's programs are scheduled to decline both as a share of GDP and domestic spending, because they do not compete on a level playing field with these rapidly growing entitlement programs."--Publisher website
Gendered journeys, mobile emotions by Gayle Letherby( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is increasingly acknowledged that an analysis of emotions is necessary to fully understand the social world, and recent research on transport, travel and mobilities has begun to consider the gendered nature of public and personal life in relation to this sphere." "The focus of this multidisciplinary and auto/biographical volume is the emotional relationship that individuals and groups have with different means of travel. Attention is given to a variety of travel experiences, including travelling in trains, planes, cars, buses and ships, as well as biking, cycling, running and walking, from the perspective of travellers and those who earn their living in assisting these experiences of others. Imaginary travel and the relationships between art and travel are also considered." "Adopting innovative approaches to experiential material ranging from personal memories to empirical research, Gendered Journeys, Mobile Emotions opens up and illuminates an interdisciplinary debate about the gendered, emotive and emotional nature of travelling."--Jacket

Kids' share 2008 : how children fare in the federal budget by Adam Carasso( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Kids' Share 2008," a second annual report, looks comprehensively at trends in federal spending and tax expenditures on children. This report updates the previous year's report, "Kids' Share 2007," adding in actual (rather than projected) budget numbers for 2007 and projections of spending within the children's budget against other federal spending through 2018. It adds several new children's programs for which the authors have tracked budget data, and improves estimates of children's spending in some programs included in 2007. Key findings suggest that historically children have not been a budget priority. In 2007, this trend continued, as children's spending did not keep pace with GDP growth. The amount spent on children's programs is waning, and neither relatively slower growth in the economy in fiscal 2007 nor changes in party control of Congress affected this trend. Absent a policy change, children's spending will continue to be squeezed in the next decade. A section on allocation methods is appended. (Contains 7 tables and 19 figures.) [Additional funding of this research was provided by First Focus. For "Kids' Share 2007," see ED497933.]
Accessibility and consumer knowledge of services for deaf adolescents by Gillian Reynolds( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The percentage of deaf and hard of hearing people who need mental health crisis services is similar to the percentage of the general population needing such services. Yet, coordinated mental services for deaf and hard of hearing individuals are virtually nonexistent. People who are deaf and hard of hearing, like everyone else, find themselves, from time to time, in need of mental health services
