9781503565333: Entitlement Nation

Despite the admittedly gradual recovery the debate over so called entitlements rages on Coined in the 1980s to encapsulate government spending aimed at offering a helping hand in health care education housing buying food etc to those who were in need of it the label has acquired pejorative overtones Implicitly or sometimes explicitly the label now refers to payments made to the lazy the incompetent the free riders and moochers who live off the generosity of the rest of us The book argues that to begin with some of the social spending under attack is funded by earlier contributions made by the beneficiaries e g Medicare Social Security Changes may be needed in how these systems operate but scrapping them would be like throwing the baby out with the bathwater Most other social spending is essential in order to create the skills and capabilities indispensable to competing in an economically multipolar world as well as to address the chasm of inequality that has opened up in the United States Condemning millions to live increasingly degrading lives in a country as wealthy as ours is little short of economic eugenics The main thesis of this work however is that the entitlement mind set is deeply rooted among the affluent and super rich as well Ever lower tax rates deregulation and subsidies and in general highly generous treatment is taken to be a right by large corporations and the affluent This entitlement is ensured by an army of compliant politicians and lobbyists ideology driven think tanks a market oriented media Entitlement is a society wide phenomenon and we are all culpable in that regard As an exceptional nation we reserve the right to act as we see fit in defense of our unique values Paradoxically we sometimes violate those very values in the process of defending them The entitlement to be prosecutor judge and jury also stands out in national attitudes to globalization and our policies in science and technol

About the Author:

Dr. Bernard Arogyaswamy is a professor of management, global business, and innovation. As a first-generation immigrant, he has benefited greatly from the country's meritocratic higher education system. After completing a doctorate in business administration, Bernard has taught at a Jesuit institution for over twenty-five years. During the past three decades, he has written extensively on topics as varied as culture, innovation policy, and social entrepreneurship. He has also written two books. Though a firm believer in American economic, political, and social institutions, he is concerned over the divisiveness that has gripped our society, partly rooted in the belief that some individuals and groups are gaming the system. He concurs that such opportunistic manipulation is indeed occurring but that it has spread to all segments of society in matters as diverse as immigration, globalization, taxation, and science.
