Summary This title explores whether government spending -- on education, health care, and earmark projects -- is wasteful, whether government spending should allow deficits and debt, the impact spending policies have on the economy, and ways spending must change to meet future challenges, like the increase in retirees, the evolving clean energy industry, and the changing needs of the nation's defense. The viewpoints are selected from a wide range of highly respected and often hard-to-find sources and publications. Allows the reader to attain the higher-level critical thinking and reading skills that are essential in a culture of diverse and contradictory opinions.
