Downsizing Federal Government Spending grounds today’s most pressing policy debates firmly in the numbers. It is a clear and essential guide for policymakers and voters alike on reducing federal spending and on preventing a massive budget crisis that could crush the generations ahead.
This collection has been edited and compiled by Chris Edwards, director of tax policy at the Cato Institute. It provides a detailed series of comprehensive and concise policy strategies to reduce rampant government spending and the national deficit. Sectioned by topic – including Agriculture, Defense, Education (both K-12 and Higher Education), Healthcare, Foreign Policy, and Fiscal Policy - each chapter has been meticulously researched by Cato scholars. Consistent and informed critiques of federally-funded programs come with solid alternatives – identifying areas for needed spending cuts, state-based funding, privatization, termination, and more.
Downsizing Federal Government Spending moves forward with the crucial task of evaluating federal spending, and reveals how spending changes and cuts would not only eliminate the deficit, but also strengthen the economy, expand personal freedom, and leave a positive fiscal legacy for the next generation.
