Editorial Reviews


In clear, crisp prose, Jon Forman explains the government's many influences on the activities and needs of ordinary working Americans. In the process, he challenges the government to make work more rewarding and to improve the amount of economic justice in the country. Forman has studied these issues for many years and his analysis is both sophisticated and straightforward. This book will be an excellent resource for anyone interested in the government's policy toward work. --George K. Yin, Edwin S. Cohen Distinguished Professor of Law and Taxation, University of Virginia, and former Chief of Staff, Joint Committee on Taxation

It is remarkable that Professor Forman has offered so many reform ideas in so many policy arenas. One hopes that the book will have an impact on agenda setting in the 2006 and 2008 elections, and beyond. --Yung-Ping (Bing) Chen, Frank J. Manning Eminent Scholar's Chair, Gerontology Institute, John W. McCormack Graduate School, University of Massachusetts Boston

No one has ever put together ideas, recommendations, and facts in quite this way before. Jon Forman has organized his materials around the theme of getting America back to work. His ideas are good, and his research is solid. --Joel S. Newman, Professor of Law, Wake Forest University
