Most widely held works by Alvin Rabushka
The United States in the 1980s by Peter Duignan( Book )

29 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in 3 languages and held by 1,574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in The United States in the 1980s, written by a group of renowned and widely respected specialists, are a major contribution to a balanced discussion of the choices that lie ahead. The authors analyze the central issues, describe the policy options open to the country, and recommend specific courses of action to deal with or mitigate the problems confronting the United States--in recognition of the fact that the major problems of the new decade "are interrelated, that no problem can be resolved in isolation, and that different perspectives can contribute to a clearer and more balanced understanding of the problems that are often viewed as separate from one another." The United States in 1980s will not provide comfort or reassurance for pessimists or optimists. On the contrary, by stressing that there are realistic limits to America's ability to solve all problems--domestic and international--the essays offer guidance for sensible solutions and identify the solid base of strength upon which the United States can build in the new decade
The flat tax by Robert E Hall( Book )

38 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On December 10, 1981, the authors of The Flat Tax proposed replacing the federal income tax with a low, simple, flat tax in an article in the Wall Street Journal. That article, titled "A proposal to simplify our tax system," displayed the iconic postcard that became the flat tax's symbol, meaning that an individual or business could file a federal income tax return on a postcard-sized form. -- from dust jacket

Red flag over Hong Kong by Bruce Bueno de Mesquita( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On 1 July 1997 the red flag with five yellow stars of the People's Republic of China will be hoisted over Government House in Hong Kong, replacing the Union Jack and symbolizing the culmination of a profound political transition. The United Kingdom, which has governed the colony since 1841, will have transferred sovereignty and administrative responsibility over Hong Kong to mainland China's Communist party. Hong Kong is in for a rocky road in the years ahead. Future treatment of Hong Kong will be caught up in the political competition for control of China. Victims of that competition will include the free press, academic freedom, open and fair elections, and some portion of market freedom. Hong Kong will not be as tightly controlled as the rest of China, but neither will it be the free and vivacious place it has been for the past half century. The political and economic landscape will be filled with uncertainty, cronyism, lost freedoms, and more corruption than has been known in the recent past. It is a bleak picture indeed

Fixing Russia's banks : a proposal for growth by Mikhail S Bernstam( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fixing Russia's Banks documents how Russia's financial system is built on what Michael S. Bernstam and Alvin Rabushka call ersatz banks. These inferior imitation banks have served largely as tools of the government to redistribute public funds to favored firms. The highly vaunted achievements of privatization, removal of price controls, and foreign trade liberalization have failed to produce growth because of a lack of private financing. National income has declined nearly 40 percent since 1992, with no recovery in sight
