The great austerity war : what caused the US deficit crisis and who should pay to fix It? /

by Crotty, James | University of Massachusetts-Amherst. Political Economy esearch Institute.

Edition: rev. ed.Publisher: Amherst, Mass. Political Economy Research Institute (PERI), University of Massachusetts-Amherst 2011Description: PDF.Other title: University of Massachusetts-Amherst. Political Economy.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: First Draft: June 2011 Revised: December 2011Summary: Rapidly rising deficits at both the federal and state and local government levels, along with prospective long-term financing problems in the Social Security and Medicare programs, have triggered a one-sided austerity-focused class war in the US and around the globe. A coalition of the richest and most economically powerful segments of society, conservative politicians who represent their interests, and right-wing populist groups like the Tea Party has demanded that deficits be eliminated by severe cuts at all levels of government in spending that either supports the poor and the middle class or funds crucial public investment. It also demands tax cuts for the rich and for business. These demands constitute a deliberate attempt to destroy the New Deal project, begun in the 1930s, whose goal was to subject capitalism to democratic control. In this paper I argue that our deficit crisis is the result of a shift from the New-Deal-based economic model of the early post-war period to today's neoliberal, free-market model. The new model has generated slow growth, rising inequality and rising deficits. Rising deficits in turn created demands for austerity. After tracing the long-term evolution of our current deficit crisis, I show ; that this crisis should be resolved primarily by raising taxes on upper-income households and large corporations, cutting war spending, and adopting a Canadian or European style health care system. Calls for massive government spending cuts should be seen as what they are - an attack by the rich and powerful against the basic interests of the American people.Availability: (1)

II THE PATH TO PROSPERITY -- ch. 9 The Mindful Society -- ch. 10 Prosperity Regained -- ch. 11 Paying for Civilization -- ch. 12 The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Government -- ch. 13 The Millennial Renewal.Summary: Setting out a bold and provocative, yet responsible and achievable, plan, "The Price of Civilization" reveals why we must - and how we can - change our entire economic culture in this time of crisis. The world economy remains in a precarious state after the recent global recession - where quick fixes were implemented instead of sustainable solutions to systemic problems. Jeffrey Sachs argues powerfully for a new co-operative, common-sense political economy, one that stresses practical partnership between government and the private sector, demands competence in both arenas and occasionally insists on carefully chosen public and private sacrifices. In this new era of global capitalism, Sachs believes that we have to forget partisanship and solve these enormous problems together, clinically and holistically, just as one would approach the eradication of a disease. "The Price of Civilization" explains how government can be made to reform corporate culture by fairly policing compensation but not stifling competition and forced to improve our energy infrastructure by both taxing emissions and providing market incentives for innovation. Sachs shows how government, business and citizens can find common ground - on bank accountability, the decentralising of social services and taxing the super-rich - as a way to achieve our shared goals of efficiency, equity and sustainability. Sparing no-one but potentially benefiting us all, "The Price of Civilization" is a masterful roadmap, a programme designed to bridge seemingly impossible divides in our society and a way forward that we - and our leaders - ignore at our peril.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
