"[Jim Miller] knows the nuances of, as well as the large questions about, the federal government. Parsimonious, and skeptical about most federal undertakings, he is the closest thing to a Jeffersonian that the modern age can produce." -- George Will, syndicated columnist and television commentator

"Probably the toughest job in Washington is Director of the Office of Management and Budget; it seems to break most of its occupants, turning them into apologists for growing government. Jim Miller lived to tell the tale, one that should be read by anyone who feels government is out of control and wonders hwy." --Robert L. Bartley, Editor, Wall Street Journal

"Jim Miller (as head of OMB) did reduce the size of the deficit, without tax increases, during the last three Reagan years. He tells how in this book." -- James M. Buchanan, Nobel laureate in economics, 1986

"Jim Miller brings to lively light the budget and the process of putting it together. He is informative, analytical, and interesting. A 'must read.'" -- George P. Shultz, former secretary of state

Fix the U. S. Budget! is a firsthand account of the crucial and extraordinary events surrounding the federal budget during the 1980's. The book spans the period of Jim Miller's service as chairman of the Federal Trade Commission and director of the Office of Management and Budget, encompassing the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings budget law, Black Monday (October 1987), and the ensuing budget summit agreement of 1987. Miller was a principal player in these events; his memoir is an original contribution to our understanding of their evolution and significance. He provides firm and persuasive recommendations for fixing the U.S. budget.
