The Growth of Government

The Growth of Government

(p.25) 2 The Growth of Government
The Scope of Government

Michael Goldsmith

Oxford University Press

Outlines the widening and deepening of government activity, as measured by increases in government revenues and expenditures, over the period 1950 to 1990. It then discusses the evolving ways in which this growth has been perceived by public opinion, and the factors that have shaped this evolution—changing demographics and demands for government action, and changing abilities on the part of governments to satisfy such demand, as a function of economic growth and development.
