About this product
- DescriptionOne-Armed Ecomist represents a personal, if eclectic, approach to public policy. Weidenbaum avoids doctrinaire positions, be they Keynesian or monetarist or supply side or libertarian. This distillation of Weidenbaum's wide range of writings on public policy issues over the last four decades draws on his practical experience in government and business as well as his academic research over that extended period. The volume covers six major clusters of policy issues: ecomic policy, government programs, business decision-making, government regulation, the defense sector, and the international ecomy. There are chapters on how to achieve a cleaner environment, how to fundamentally overhaul the tax and health care systems, and a defense of Reagamics. The work examines how public sector activities impact the performance of the national ecomy. Its coverage includes the role of government as a buyer, a seller, a provider of credit, and a source of subsidy and support. Drawing heavily on his experience as ecomist for a major military contractor, Weidenbaum shows that the defense industry is the most heavily regulated sector of the American ecomy and discusses ways to modernize the arcane and wasteful process of procuring weapon systems. He also draws on his work on the hidden costs of regulation on the consumer, showing how to improve the regulatory process so as to achieve national objectives while minimizing the burdens of compliance. The last section is devoted to the international ecomy, with chapters on the role of the overseas enterprises. One-Armed Ecomist is a lucid analysis of major public policy issues of our time. As such it will be of special interest to organizations involved in public policy, think tanks, and government policymaking groups, as well as readers interested in fresh perspectives on a broad range of policy issues.
