The fiscal revolution in America by Herbert Stein( Book )

25 editions published between 1969 and 2010 in English and Chinese and held by 2,030 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic study chronicles the revolution in fiscal policy that occurred in the United States between the administrations of Herbert Hoover and John F. Kennedy. Unforeseen by any economist or school of economists, this period witnessed the doctrine of balancing the budget give way to the principle of managing government expenditures and taxes to ensure stability and growth. With his characteristic wit and authority, the author vividly relates how the thinking and decisions of the leading participants interacted with changing conditions, objectives, and experience to produce this major change of policy. Kenneth Boulding said that this is the "kind of book that is all too rare"--"well-written and beautifully documented."

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Objective, readable, and witty, Herbert Stein resists being pigeon-holed as liberal or conservative, as a member of any of the "schools" that warp the vision of many economists. In On the Other Hand, he gives a fresh view, derived from fifty-six years of participating in and observing Washington economics, of the economic policy and economic talk of our time. He examines contemporary controversy over economic growth, poverty, employment, taxes, and deficits; discusses the role of presidents and their advisers in the formation of economic policy; and assesses the ideas of economists whose theories have influenced economic practice
