Brookhiser, Richard
September 1978
National Review;9/29/1978, Vol. 30 Issue 39, p1199
This article focuses on the political and economic conditions in the U.S. It is reported that the old categories and ways of looking at problems are no longer valid, the structure of government itself is the threshold barrier to new approaches and policies. It discusses the foreign policy of the country. The struggle for the world, and the possible resolutions of it, have always been his primary interests, even the domestic issue which first boosted former President Richard Nixon to prominence. The author refers to the Bateman-Lyday plan which extended the federally funded nationwide floor to every American family with children. It added six million people to the welfare rolls and millions to the budget.
