Book Description

November 1998 1858988993 978-1858988993
This work examining the origins of the modern American welfare state from a public choice perspective looks at the uneven distribution of federal emergency relief spending during the Great Depression. It suggests political motivation on Roosevelt's part, not concern for the unemployed.

Editorial Reviews


...engaging and provocative...Couch and Shughart's book provides a useful outline of some of the arguments that a public-choice-based view of the New Deal must attempt to make. They present an interesting overview of several agencies and programs, accompanied by quotes and examples that often succeed in giving the reader a feeling of being in the midst of the action. -- Barbara J. Alexander, The Journal of Economic History

This book...represents a watershed in the application of Public Choice analysis to an important episode in recent economic history. -- - Gary M. Anderson, Public Choice
