Federal Budget Control: A Balanced Budget Amendment or Statutory Limits? $61.00
Editors: Darren Groff and Blaine Rutherford
Book Description:
One of the most persistent political issues facing Congress in recent decades is whether to require that the budget of the United States be in balance. Although a balanced federal budget has long been held as a political ideal, the accumulation of large deficits in recent years has heightened concern that some action to require a balance between revenues and expenditures may be necessary. The debate over a balanced budget measure actually consists of several interrelated debates. Most prominently, the arguments of proponents have focused on the economy and the possible harm resulting from consistently large deficits and a growing federal debt. Another issue involves whether such a requirement should be statutory or made part of the Constitution. This book provides an overview of the issues and options that have been raised during prior consideration of proposals for a balanced budget constitutional amendment with a focus on statutory limits on total spending as a method of budget control.
