Public Claims on U. S. Output: Federal Budget Options in the Last Half of the Seventies.
American Enterprise Inst. for Public Policy Research, Washington, DC.
The volume focuses on the long-term outlook for the Federal budget in terms of the overall balance between outlays and receipts and the possible program options that might be considered in policy planning over the long term. Chapter 2 provides an overview of the budget outlook for the last half of the 1970's. Chapters 3-10 discuss possible program options within the budget categories of: national defense, agriculture, science, technology and industry, housing and community development, education, manpower, health, and income security. Chapter 7, dealing with the education budget, includes discussion of programs at all levels--occupational, vocational, and adult education--other educational aids, and general science. Focusing on the budget outlook for manpower programs in the 1974 budget, chapter 8 offers an overview of the rationale, program objectives, performance, proposed cuts, and suggests a revised role for future manpower programs. All estimates discussed in the volume are based on the fiscal 1974 budget, and thus do not account for events that have occurred since. (Author/MW)
