Election '92 Discussion Set. [Participants' Booklet] and Leader's Guide.
McCoy, Martha, Ed.
This document consists of two publications: a participants' booklet designed to promote discussion among small groups, and a Leader's Guide. The participants' booklet contains information on four important issues in the 1992 election year: health care, the economy, welfare reform, and foreign policy. "The Health Care Crisis in America" contains background information, a discussion of ethical issues, a discussion of policy issues, and a list of sources of additional information. "Revitalizing America's Economy for the 21st Century" presents background information, four general views of the primary problems in the economy, and a variety of proposals for immediate steps the federal government could take to revitalize the economy. "Welfare Reform: What Should We Do For Our Nation's Poor?" presents background information on poverty and the welfare system and four approaches to welfare reform. "The Role of the United States in a Changing World" offers four alternative approaches for the future of U.S. foreign policy. The Leaders Guide provides questions for leading a discussion on each of these issues, and suggestions for organizing a study circle. (DB)
