Summary: What are the appropriate public policies for America as it approaches the coming century? The signs are all around. A market-liberal revolution is sweeping the planet, from Eastern Europe to Latin America to Asia, where governments are selling off state enterprises, cutting taxes, deregulating business, and showing new respect for property rights and freedom of choice. The two dozen essays in this book discuss how to bring the market-liberal revolution to the United States and explain how for-profit companies will revolutionize education, how deregulation of medical care can lower prices, how America can save $150 billion a year in military spending, how property rights can fix the environment, how deregulation and free trade produce prosperity, how competition produces health and safety, how America must deal with nuclear proliferation, how we can balance the budget without raising taxes, how the poverty and welfare trap can be ended, and how the inner cities can become livable again.Summary: . This blueprint for reform is the alternative to both the status quo and the calls for even more government interference in our personal and economic activities. Any viable agenda for the 21st century must recognize the truth that all central planning, whether for education, medical care, or the environment, will only end in failure. Market Liberalism presents a new vision for American government, a positive, optimistic vision rooted in the principles of the Founders and suited to the challenges of the 21st century. It offers the promise of a free, prosperous, and pluralistic society for America and the world.
