Antistatism and Government Downsizing

An Historical Perspective
December 1, 1996

Abstract

The author describes the recent trend to both diminish government's role and reduce its size. She provides an historical overview of previous cycles of antistatism and government downsizing; briefly summarizes a period when a fairly stable balance of opposing views of the government role was achieved; and comments on possible scenarios regarding the roles of both federal and state governments in the future.
