Since 1980, the national agenda and the attention of Congress have been focused on federal budget deficits. This is the first book, however, to examine how lawmakers think about fiscal problems and to emphasize individual legislators economic beliefs. Based on interviews with 110 members of Congress, the book includes an assessment of Congress s capacity to make sound fiscal policy in the future."
