This collection takes a critical look at the conventional wisdom of economists on trade issues in the 1990s. Comprehensive in scope, the book covers new perspectives on international economy; current issues in American trade policy; global trade imbalances and international monetary reform; and development policy. It will be the most up-to-date, non-technical reader on international trade and finance since 1986. --the only reader containing articles by respected economists with dissenting views on international trade and finance. Explains why free-trade policies and flexible exchange rates are not cure-alls for economic problems --includes essays by Robert Kuttner, Paul Davidson, Lance Taylor, David P. Levine, Stephen C. Smith, Thea M. Lee, Robert E. Scott, Dale Belman, and the editor --contains up-to-date discussions of current issues such as how trade is affecting American wages; the real costs and benefits of protection; what kind of exchange-rate policy we should follow; whether free-trade agreements like NAFTA will benefit most Americans; and the type of trade policy that really works in developing countries --includes provocative essays on whether and how international trade should be managed on an industry-by-industry basis and how international competition can cause losses as well as gains for national economies.

The American dream is fading: for nearly two decades, the economy has been performing below par, the quality of life has deteriorated, and the government has not confronted the public problems that concern citizens most. In this provocative book, Alice Rivlin offers a straightforward, nontechnical look at the issues threatening the American dream and proposes a solution: restructure responsibilities between the federal and state government. Under her plan, the federal government would eliminate most of its programs in education, housing, highways, social services, economic development, and job training, enabling it to move the federal budget from deficit toward surplus. States would pick up these responsibilities, carrying out a "productivity agenda" to revitalize the American economy. Common shared taxes would give the state adequate revenues to carry out their tasks and would reduce intrastate competition and disparities. The federal government would be freer to deal with increasingly complex international issues and would retain responsibility for programs requiring national uniformity. A primary federal job would be the reform of health care financing to ensure control of costs and to mandate basic insurance coverage for everyone. Published in the summer of 1992, Reviving the American Dream was read by presidential candidate Bill Clinton; by year's end, President Clinton appointed its author, Alice Rivlin, as deputy budget director. Today, the ideal in Rivlin's book—and Rivlin herself—are having an impact inside the administration. Selected as one of Choice magazine's Outstanding Books of 1993
