"Walter Williams shows how Reagan and his foremost disciple George W. Bush have created a plutocracy where the United States is no longer a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, but it is ruled by the wealthiest individuals and corporate America. Williams urges Americans to move from political apathy and draw aside the power curtain to see the politicians and the corporations lurking there - and to see the dangers they represent to the American way of life."--Jacket

Social program implementation by Walter, Ed Williams( Book )

10 editions published in 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book seeks to stimulate inquiry into the area of implementation in three social policy areas: education programs; community-oriented programs; and transfer-payment*programs. It is intended for government groups and social science researchers, including analysts, who carry out programs, researchers who are engaged in social policy studies, and those who are concerned directly with the study of implementation issues. The typical chapter analyzes in some detail, a specific case of social program implementation and through this analysis of process reveals the complexity of implementation. Some of the programs analyzed include the following: Title v of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, the Model Cities Program and the Supplemental Security Income Program. The greatest problem in devising social programs is finding the means for converting the policies into feasible field operations that correspond to the original intentions. Rather than suggesting that monetary or political problems are the major blocks that hinder the development of better social programs, implementation problems are blamed. (Am)

The politics of bad ideas : the great tax cut delusion and the decline of good government in America by Bryan D Jones( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: For the past 25 years, Americans have been lead to believe that government can cut taxes without adjusting future spending and not harm government finance. Simply put, our government's economic policies have not worked as advertised. That is the conclusion by two prominent scholars in the field-Bryan D. Jones and Walter Williams-and they support it with sharp and insightful analysis of the bad economic ideas that have shaped our economy. The authors look at the amazing resilience of these ideas and why they continue to survive, despite overwhelming evidence that they have caused damage to our long-term fiscal stability and the American economy. Ending on a positive note, Politics of Bad Ideas concludes with suggestions on how we can get out from under the dead weight of these destructive strategies
