U.S. Senate Decision-Making: The Trade Agreements Act of 1979

Synopsis

This book illuminates the decision-making process of the U.S. Senate through an analysis of how it reached agreement on various parts of the Trade Agreements Act of 1979. Jerome examines the chronology of the legislative process dealing with the act, documenting the particular nature of Senate decision making. He reviews current decision-making theories and examines various points of his case study to see how reality conforms with those theories and suggests reforms and revisions of those theories to more accurately reflect the decision-making process in the Senate.
