Excerpt: Two hundred years ago, the Pounding Fathers gathered in Philadelphia to consider revisions to the Articles of Confederation, the basis for the existing govermnent of the United States. At that time, the nations poor financial conditiontrade imbalances, deficient domestic and international-credit, the lack of a national currency and banking system, and other ?problems-was foremost in their minds. lbday, as we celebrate the bicentennial of the Constitution, problems with the financial system are again prominent among the challenges to government. Our government continues to struggle with the budget, as it has since the deficit first broke the $100 billion mark in 1982. The deficit declined markedly in 1987, reflecting an apparently temporary acceleration in tax revenues. But a basic imbalance remains between the programs and services we expect from government and the taxes we collect to pay for them.
