Charles Longstreet Welt- Can't BUY ner, in Policy Review (Fall 1977), 513 C St.
N.E., Washington, D.C. 20002.
President Carter signed a $14.7 billion housing measure last October, calling it a "giant step forward" for the nation's cities. But the evidence is growing, says Weltner, a federal judge and former congressman, that "throwing federal dollars" at urban problems may be next to useless. As a case in point, he cites his hometown of Atlanta, Ga. (pop. 1.7 million).
