Entitlements will be one of, if not the, key issue in the Presidential election this year. In this book, one of America's foremost economists and demographers puts together a handy, brief, accessible guide that includes, for the first time, all the data on the growth of entitlements in America over the past 50 years. Shows clearly the present day and future impact of entitlement growth on American culture and economy. Includes easy-to-read, four color charts throughout the book that show growth of specific entitlements, including, medicare, social security, and disability payments. A nation of Taker's also contains a response to the data from William A. Galston and Yuval Levin, two of America's leading political theorists. Nick Eberstadt, William Galston, and Yuval Levin are highly regarded experts on political and economic issues and are regularly called on by the media to explain complex economic issues.
