The New Federalism Paradox, William Hudson Dec 1979

The New Federalism Paradox, William Hudson

William E. Hudson

One of the aims of Nixon's "New Federalism" reforms was to promote political decentralization in the federal system. An examination of the impact of revenue-sharing and block grant programs in El Paso, Texas, reveals that the New Federalism sees to have had the opposite effect in that city. El Paso is now more dependent, politically and economically, on federal grants than it was prior to the New Federalism and local autonomy is significantly reduced. The reasons for this paradoxical impact in El Paso and the applicability of these findings to other cities are discussed.

Reorganizing The Lines Of Power., Derek Shearer May 1971

Reorganizing The Lines Of Power., Derek Shearer

Derek Shearer

Like the phrase "new national priorities," the term "conversion" has become a favorite of many liberal groups and politicians. Its use reflects a concern that, for too long, the military-industrial sector of the economy has monopolized resources of the U.S., while pressing domestic needs have gone unmet. The difficulty in translating this legitimate anxiety into effective political action is shown by the many interpretations given to conversion, and by the confusion that often surrounds discussion of the subject, especially when legislation is proposed to achieve conversion.
