9781892123145: U.S. By the Numbers: What's Left, Right & Wrong with America (Capital Ideas for Business & Personal Development)

"U.S. by the Numbers" looks at literally hundreds of indicators--taxes, budgets, education, crime, the economy and business, demographic trends, politics and government, the environment, health care, and other societal and lifestyle areas--to reveal how each state and the country as a whole measure up to the rest of the world as we enter a new century. Through quick, easy-to-digest statistical charts and graphs, they examine which states are involved most effectively in the "Entrepreneurial Revolution," where private enterprise and ingenuity take on the challenges of providing public services. They also look at which states perform well in terms of crime, taxes and education....which states carry the heaviest government spending and debt burdens...where economic growth and job creation are robust and where they lag... which states spend the most on the environment, which have the highest abortion rate, and much, much more.
