Abstract

This study examines the impact of postindustrial trends on policy formulation in the American states. The most widely predicted result of the changing economy is increased inequality of incomes. In turn, this outcome leads to social fragmentation and a declining commitment to provide public services, especially those that redistribute income. Based on a comparison of three groups of states with differing economic structures, the article finds that most of the trends predicted by postindustrial theorists are occurring and suggests some possible directions for future research in this realm.
