This book examines surveys based on government information dealing with economic factors and education factors in the United States and how those factors affect policy initiatives. Chapters include: (1) "Recent Trends and Prospects" where particular emphasis is placed on assessing the risks of higher inflation; (2) "Macroeconomic and Structural Policies" where the reasons for and market reactions to the Federal Reserve's reversal of the policy stimulus provided by unusually low short-term interest rates is discussed; (3) "Selected Structural Reforms" where three of the initiatives the administration has put before Congress to reform some of the most basic services provided by the public sector are discussed; (4) "Education in the United States" where the strengths and weaknesses of the current education system are surveyed and recent policy initiatives are assessed; and (5) "Conclusions." Extensive tables and diagrams present statistical data. (EH)
