The Global Debt Crisis : Haunting U.S. and European Federalism, Paperback / softback Book

The Global Debt Crisis : Haunting U.S. and European Federalism Paperback / softback

Edited by Paul E. Peterson, Daniel Nadler

Paperback / softback


Debt crises have placed strains not only on the European Union's nascent federal system but also on the federal system in the United States.

Old confrontations over fiscal responsibility are being renewed, often in a more virulent form, in places as far flung as Detroit, Michigan, and Valencia, Spain, to say nothing of Greece and Cyprus.

Increasing the complexity of the issue has been public sector collective bargaining, now a component of most federal systems. The attendant political controversies have become the debate of a generation.

Paul Peterson and Daniel Nadler have assembled experts from both sides of the Atlantic to break down the structural flaws in federal systems of government that have led toeconomic and political turmoil.

Proposed solutions offer ways to preserve and restore vibrant federal systems that meet the needs of communities struggling for survival in an increasingly unified global economy.
