Overview

This book warns about the problems that the United States—and countries around the world—will be forced to confront as their populations age and as increasing globalization reduces the power of individual countries to insulate their economies and their policies from the effects of other countries' actions. These problems include threats to future living standards, nationally and internationally—from the rising deficits and associated low savings rates, throughout the developed world. They also include the growing danger posed for future generations by the yoke of prior spending commitments built into the major entitlement programs. The authors discuss ways the United States can effectively plan for its future in an increasingly interdependent world—if it has the political will to begin now. For the serious policy-interested reader concerned about how to protect future U.S. living standards.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Governments of industrial countries throughout the world are losing control of their finances as expenses outstrip income and they are forced to borrow and thus pay interest rather than shape economic development. Budget, treasury, and financial officials; analysts from international organizations; and academics from the US, Europe, and Japan address the problem by examining the fiscal implications of changing demographics, the yoke of prior commitments, and fiscal policy and worldwide saving and investment. They conclude that the technical means for solving the problem exists, waiting only the political will to abandon prior commitments, finance present commitments, and save for future commitments. No index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
