The Salary Revolution and American State-Building

(p.359) Epilogue
Against the Profit Motive

Nicholas R. Parrillo

Yale University Press

The Epilogue presents the story of the salary revolution from a wider perspective. It consists, it states, of two distinct through simultaneous transformations. The first involving payments and the other involving bounties. Why did this happen? Why did the system exist in the first place? The salary has, through a long process of trial and error, become integral to the vindication of liberal-republican values, the honoring of plural interest-group claims, and the popular acceptance of legislatively enacted programs in a democratic society.

Keywords:   salary revolution, payments, liberal-republican values, democratic society, interest groups
