From the Publisher'Let there be no doubt. Some of the best economic comment in our time, unabashedly liberal and egalitarian, comes these days like a fresh breeze from the Great Plains. The source is Wallace Peterson, a longtime professor and truly distinguished scholar at the University of Nebraska. He was never more cogent than in this well- quantified, high readable treatise on what constitutes good and decent government in our time.'
John Kenneth Galbraith, Harvard University, 1990
'This book would serve well as a text for a graduate or upper level undergraduate course looking at the role of government in income distribution...it is a handy collection of facts on government benefits.' Journal of Economic Literature 30 1992
