Summary

Summary

Like most of those who have observed the constant fighting in Washington over the past three decades about how best to eliminate the federal deficit, one would assume that, once there was a surplus, the annual budget debate would be far easier, go much faster, and be far less confusing. However, assumptions are typically wrong. In The Guide for the Federal Budget, author Stanley E. Collender makes clear that despite the regular uncertainties of the nations budgetary needs and the first fiscal year with a surplus since 1969, the budget is an immense and understandable entity. Collender's ability to present the most complex and intricate budget process in the world into understandable and concise format is excellent. This book will serve as a resource to anyone trying to understand what goes into preparing the largest budget in the world.
