Balancing the Federal Budget
Trimming the Herds or Eating the Seed Corn?



December 2002 | 295 pages | CQ Press

In this timely book Irene Rubin focuses on how government tried and eventually succeeded in balancing the U.S. federal budget in 1998. With characteristic insight and a lively narrative, Rubin describes the successive efforts of Congress and the administration over seventeen years to shape a process that would encourage balance, as well as the reactions of federal agencies to the pressure.
