The Federal Budget Outlook and Its Implications for Higher Education.
Hartman, Robert W.
Given the need for a large stimulus by the federal government in the short-run and given the need for structural reform on our budgeting and taxing process over the long-run, what is likely to happen to federal expenditures for higher education? Two issues likely to arise are: (1) in this next year there is absolutely no excuse for holding back new higher education programs or fuller-funding of old programs because of "inflation"; and (2) if tax cuts are to be used to bring the economy out of the doldrums, the tax changes should be (primarily) temporary ones. During the recovery, the prerequisites for a sensible tax-and-budgeting process should be put in place. How the government decides the big issues of short-term economic stimulus and long-term budget reform more than anything else will determine the fate of federal aid to postsecondary education.
