Summary
This book reframes budget debates in the US. It explains how the public's preoccupation with tax policy alone has obscured any understanding of government's ability to complement the private sector through investment and insurance programs that enhance the general welfare and prosperity of our society at large. The author argues that when we choose how government should spend and tax, we open a window into our "fiscal soul," because those choices are the means by which we express the values we cherish and the regard in which we hold our fellow citizens. Though these values are being diminished by short-sighted decisions to starve government, strategic government spending can directly make citizens happier, healthier, and even wealthier. The book combines the latest economic research with insider knowledge of the budget process. It takes a multi-disciplinary approach to tax and fiscal policy analysis, and the utility of government in the US
