Summary
"Both the Democratic and Republican parties proclaim that they have the best interests of the nation and its people at heart. Both are also adamant that they have the best proposals and positions on economic policies, including taxation, spending priorities, wages, business regulation, and other influences on economic growth and household finances. This volume carefully examines the two parties' respective policies, providing a detailed yet readable and understandable look at how the parties agree, disagree, and find compromise on the broad range of problems and issues facing American society in the 21st century. Each entry includes an infographic that offers bulleted 'at-a-glance' summaries of the two parties' positions on each issue today, an 'Issue Overview' providing basic definitions and background for understanding the debate on each issue, and a main entry that explains prevailing party sentiments, the diversity of opinion within each party, and the shifts in party position on that issue over time. Selected entries also feature informative sidebars that supply additional content, such as primary documents that showcase the viewpoints of key political figures and institutions or biographical profiles of individuals who have helped shape their party's policies on the issue in question. Additional features include: an examination of the degree to which the behavior of the parties; the laws they pass and oppose; actually match their stated policy positions and philosophies; information in a user-friendly format designed to help readers quickly find relevant information on a wide range of high-interest issues; support of curricula of economics classes"--Publisher's website
