Abstract

How has the Clinton administration built upon lessons from past federal and state urban policy initiatives to fashion its Empowerment Zones and Enterprise Communities Act? Does a blending of historical themes constitute reinventing government? Marilyn Marks Rubin answers these questions by looking back at two predominant themes of the past 30 years that constitute seemingly unrelated approaches to providing assistance to distressed areas: the Enterprise Zone theme of the Reagan-Bush years and the Model Cities theme of Lyndon B. Johnson's Great Society. She indicates how lessons from earlier iterations of Federal Enterprise Zone proposals, from state experiences, and from the Model Cities program have informed the Clinton Administration.
