Federal Budget and Financial Management Reform

Synopsis

A collection of original essays by specialists in the field, this book examines some of the most crucial budgetary and financial management problems that face the United States government and makes concrete recommendations on how current processes can be improved. Topics include proposed revamping of a budget-making process that now leads to deadlock and ultimately to higher deficits, and the need for more accurate deficit forecasting, centralized financial management, improved information technology, and responsible bipartisan action at the highest level.
