Full faith and credit : the great S & L debacle and other Washington sagas by Lewis William Seidman( Book )
5 editions published between 1993 and 2000 in English and held by 616 libraries worldwide
"My friends, there is good news and bad news," writes L. William Seidman in his illuminating Washington memoir. "The good news is that the full faith and credit of the FDIC and the U.S. government stands behind your money in the bank. But the bad news is that you, my fellow taxpayers, stand behind the U.S. government." In Full Faith and Credit, the outspoken and controversial former FDIC/RTC chairman under Presidents Reagan and Bush offers a witty, Washington-laced journal on how politics shaped the S & L disaster and many other banking and financial issues of recent years. During his tenure as FDIC chairman, he was chosen by Congress to lead the cleanup of the S & L mess. Now he describes who was involved and how the government let it occur - including what he saw, heard, and survived as a highly visible member of the government. In his colorful and contrary style, Seidman takes a sharp, entertaining look at Washington's role in the nation's banking industry, and tells how the Reagan administration's deregulation of S & Ls left a vacuum that sucked in every slick operator and incompetent that could be found; how the bankers made a record number of bad real estate loans that regulators were too late in controlling; and how the S & L catastrophe was nurtured in the fertile ground of "politics as usual," apathy, and plain old criminality. He also discusses the lawsuits that came out of the scandal, focusing on Charles Keating, Michael Milken, and Neil Bush. Seidman's punchy narrative contains "close encounters" with John Sununu, Treasury Secretary Nicholas Brady, Congressmen Henry Gonzales and John Dingell, and many others. He also answers the question "With all that experience, what have you learned?" with valuable observations from twenty years inside the Beltway

Goal Ambiguity and Organizational Decoupling: The Failure of Rational Program Implementation by Lewis William Seidman( Book )
1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Noting a general dissatisfaction with the implementation and evaluation of large-scale educational programs, this paper argues that the rational model that is the foundation for large-scale educational programs is faulty. According to the rational model, government mandates call for educational programs to remedy social problems; then rewards and sanctions (applied according to the results of program evaluations) force schools to implement these programs; and finally the resulting changes alleviate the original social problems. One difficulty with the model is that there is often a tenuous link between actual program intent and evaluative criteria. Evaluative criteria chosen are usually those easily measurable, like test performance, rather than those that might actually indicate that the rather ambiguous program goals (such as reduction of poverty) have been realized. Thus, program intent may at times be decoupled from the evaluative criteria used to force program implementation. A second problem concerns the many possible focuses of evaluation: program compliance, program implementation, educational outcomes, or social outcomes. It has not been demonstrated that evaluations of any of these factors are effective in achieving program intent. For this reason, schools often decouple such dubious outcome data from program decisions. (Author/JM)
