Editors Christopher Culp and William Niskanen have assembled an expert cast of contributors, each of whom are leaders in their respective fields - from credit risk management to energy and derivatives markets - to provide an unbiased public policy analysis of the failure of Enron and other major corporations."--Jacket
The cult of the presidency : America's dangerous devotion to executive power by Gene Healy( )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Bush years justifiably gave rise to fears of a new imperial presidency. Yet despite the controversy surrounding the administration's expansive claims of executive power, both Left and Right agree on the boundless nature of presidential responsibility. The imperial presidency is the price we seem to be willingly and dangerously agreeable to pay in order to make the office the focus of our national hopes and dreams. Interweaving historical scholarship, legal analysis, and cultural commentary, author Healy argues that the Presidency needs to be reined in, its powers checked and supervised, and its wartime authority put back under the oversight of the Congress and the courts. Only then will we begin to return the Presidency to its proper, constitutionally limited role.--From publisher description

Fool's errands : America's recent encounters with nation building by Gary Dempsey( )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the decade following the end of the Cold War the United States undertook several nation-building missions around the globe, most of which have failed. We said we'd bring order to Somalia, but we left chaos. We went to Haiti to restore democracy, but left tyranny. We intervened in Kosovo to create a multiethnic democracy, but we may become embroiled in renewed strife and bloodshed. This extremely timely book cuts through the excuses and uncovers the causes of Washington's pattern of failure

In defense of global capitalism by Johan Norberg( )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 993 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Defense of Global capitalism is the first book to rebut, systematically and thoroughly, the claims of the anti-globalization movement. With facts, statistics, and graphs, Norberg shows why capitalism is in the process of creating a better world. The book is written in a conversational style with an emphasis on liberal values and the opportunities and freedom that globalization brings to the world's poor." "Norberg takes on the tough issues - economic growth, freedom vs. equality, free trade and fair trade, international debt, child labor, cultural imperialism - and concludes that free-market capitalism is the best route out of global poverty."--Jacket

Exiting Iraq : why the U.S. must end the military occupation and renew the war against Al Qaeda : report of a special task force by Christopher A Preble( )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Within months of the United States and its coalition partners toppling Saddam Husseins government, the Cato Institute convened a special task force of scholars and policy experts to examine U.S. strategic interests in Iraq and to question the Bush administrations intention to 2stay as long as necessary. 3 The result of their efforts was a book of their analysis that was published near the one-year anniversary of the occupation -- Exiting Iraq. As the war now enters its fourth year, Exiting Iraq remains as clear and incisive as ever, with the added dimension of its being so prophetic in what it saw, predicted, and urgently recommended. In addition to the members (listed below) of the special task force calling for the military occupation to end they showed how the presence of troops in Iraq distracts attention from fighting al-Qaeda and emboldens a new class of terrorists to take up arms against the United States. Moreover, the report underscores how the occupation is enormously costly for American taxpayers, exposes our men and women in uniform to unnecessary risks, and undermines attempts to foster political and economic reform in the region. - Publisher

Smart power : toward a prudent foreign policy for America by Ted Galen Carpenter( )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The United States confronts a host of foreign policy problems in the 21st century, yet the Republic's security strategy is increasingly muddled and counterproductive. The litany of misplaced priorities and policy failures grows ever larger." "Disagreements over Iraq policy as well as other matters have soured Washington's relations with its longtime European allies. NATO, the centerpiece of Washington's transatlantic policy for nearly six decades, is foundering in Afghanistan and displays a growing lack of cohesion and relevance. Tensions between the United States and Russia are on the rise as authoritarianism has reemerged in that country and Moscow resists Washington's assertive policies." "Ted Galen Carpenter examines these and other foreign policy challenges that America confronts in the 21st century and diagnoses what is wrong with Washington's current approach. Throughout these essays, he outlines an alternative strategy that would protect America's security while avoiding unnecessary and unrewarding military adventures."--BOOK JACKET
Mail @ the millennium : will the postal service go private? by Edward Lee Hudgins( )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the past, calls for the privatization of the U.S. Postal Service usually focused on that government monopoly's inefficiencies and high costs. But now other issues make preserving the status quo even more onerous and the benefits of privatization even greater." "The Postal Service is seeing some of its most profitable business, such as first-class correspondence and bill paying, being taken up by e-mails, faxes, on-line communications, and private carriers. To make up for projected lost revenue, the USPS is entering electronic commerce and other sectors far removed from delivering the mail. But those activities constitute unfair competition with private-sector providers because the USPS pays no taxes, can borrow from the U.S. Treasury, is exempt from most government regulations, and has regulatory authority that it can use against competitors." "This book analyzes why the Postal Service needs to be privatized if mail delivery is to be an efficient component of rather than a corroded cog in the communications and information economy." "The first section examines the state of the USPS, including its dangerous forays into cyberspace. The second section considers the changing structure of the mail market, including a look at labor problems, fatal flaws with the organization of the USPS, and the probable consequences of competition. The third section explores how to unwind government monopolies and reviews postal reforms in other countries. The fourth section offers actual reform and privatization proposals." "Essays by Postmaster General William Henderson, Federal Express founder Frederick Smith, and Pitney Bowes CEO Michael Critelli contribute to making this volume an indispensable guide for charting the future of mail in the new millennium. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
