9780669098099: The Machinery of Greed: Public Authority Abuse and What to Do About It

One of the first books to tackle the issue of public revenue-bond authorities, a sort of "off-balance-sheet" form of government that proliferated at the state and local levels through the 1970s with little oversight and accountability. Supposedly more "business-like" than traditional government departments and agencies, authorities nevertheless proved to be prone to the same sins, from cronyism to corruption -- in part because, in the name of being business-like, they pruned away many of the anti-corruption measures that were traditional government's response to generations of scandal.

About the Author:

Diana B. Henriques based The Machinery of Greed on her prize-winning investigative work at The Trenton Times in the late 1970s, where her stories led to significant reforms at several of New Jersey's statewide public authorities. She wrote the book with help from the Daniel and Florence Guggenheim Foundation while she served as a Visiting Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University, 1981-82.
