Description - The Price of Government by Peter Hutchinson

Government is broke. The 2004 federal deficit is the highest in U. S. history. The states have suffered three years of record shortfalls. Cities, counties, and school districts are laying off policemen and teachers, closing schools, and cutting services. But the fiscal pain wont go away, and the bankrupt ideologies of left and right offer little guidance. The Price of Government presents a radically different approach to budgetingone that focuses on buying results for citizens rather than cutting or adding to last years spending programs. It advocates consolidation, competition, customer choice, and a relentless focus on results to save millions while improving public services.
