Restoring America's future : preparing the nation for the 21st century : a report by Leon E Panetta( Book )

4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report by the Chairman of the Committee on the Budget of the U.S. House of Representatives presents the conclusions of an effort by the committee to outline a possible long-term budget strategy which will take the nation into the 21st century. Between June and December, 1991, the Committee held 16 hearings, 14 caucuses, and 10 briefings in which it conducted an extensive review of the nation's economy, long-term problems in the society, and the status of the budget deficit and the 1990 Budget Agreement. After presenting some background information that summarizes the status of the economy, the deficit and the Budget Agreement the report offers specific policy initiatives designed to restore confidence in the economy and government. Specifically, the program put forth contains the following elements: (1) streamlining and improving management of the Executive and Legislative branches to better serve the American people and formulate and carry out responses to national problems; (2) dramatic reductions in budget deficits over the next decade to below 0.5 percent of gross national product--GNP (compared to the current 6 percent), or preferably a balanced budget in order to free up the nation's resources for more productive private and public investments; and (3) targeted investments in programs chosen specifically to address the most serious long term threats to the nation's economic and social health. Following the chairman's report, additional views are offered by Representative Willis D. Gradison, Jr., The ranking Republican on the Budget Committee. (Db)

Worthy fights : a memoir of leadership in war and peace by Leon E Panetta( Book )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leon Panetta's first career, beginning as an army intelligence officer and including 16 years in the House of Representatives, lasted thirty-five years and culminated in his role as Clinton's budget czar and White House chief of staff. He then "retired" to establish the Panetta Institute with his wife of fifty years, Sylvia; to serve on the Iraq Study Group; and to protect his beloved California coastline. But in 2009, he accepted what many said was a thankless task: returning to public office as the director of the CIA, taking it from a state of turmoil after the Bush-era torture debates and moving it back to the vital center of America's war against Al Qaeda, including the campaign that led to the killing of Osama bin Laden. And then, in the wake of bin Laden's death, Panetta became the U.S. Secretary of Defense, inheriting two troubled wars in a time of austerity and painful choices. Worthy Fights is a reflection of Panetta's values. It is imbued with the frank, grounded, and often quite funny spirit of a man who never lost touch with where he came from: his family's walnut farm in beautiful Carmel Valley, California. It is also a testament to a lost kind of political leadership, which favors progress and duty to country over partisanship. Panetta is a Democrat who pushed for balanced budgets while also expanding care for the elderly and sick; a devout Catholic who opposes the death penalty but had to weigh every drone strike from 2009 through 2011. Throughout his career, Panetta's polestar has been his belief that a public servant's real choice is between leadership or crisis. Troubles always come about through no fault of one's own, but most can be prevented with courage and foresight
Sustaining U.S. global leadership : priorities for 21st century defense( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States has played a leading role in transforming the international system over the past sixty-five years. Working with like-minded nations, the United States has created a safer, more stable, and more prosperous world for the American people, our allies, and our partners around the globe than existed prior to World War II. Over the last decade, we have undertaken extended operations in Iraq and Afghanistan to bring stability to those countries and secure our interests. As we responsibly draw down from these two operations, take steps to protect our nation's economic vitality, and protect our interests in a world of accelerating change, we face an inflection point. This merited an assessment of the U.S. defense strategy in light of the changing geopolitical environment and our changing fiscal circumstances. This assessment reflects the President's strategic direction to the Department and was deeply informed by the Department's civilian and military leadership, including the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Secretaries of the Military Departments, and the Combatant Commanders. Out of the assessment we developed a defense strategy that transitions our Defense enterprise from an emphasis on today's wars to preparing for future challenges, protects the broad range of U.S. national security interests, advances the Department's efforts to rebalance and reform, and supports the national security imperative of deficit reduction through a lower level of defense spending. This strategic guidance document describes the projected security environment and the key military missions for which the Department of Defense (DoD) will prepare. It is intended as a blueprint for the Joint Force in 2020, providing a set of precepts that will help guide decisions regarding the size and shape of the force over subsequent program and budget cycles, and highlighting some of the strategic risks that may be associated with the proposed strategy
