The aim of this book is to provide a rather more comprehensive wide-ranging treatment of public sector economics than is usual. It deals with theory, policy and practice within the broad context of political economy and attempts a more general integration of them than is found in most other texts. It recognises that students invariably study other subjects simultaneously with economics, aiming to provide more of a multi-disciplinary approach than is usually the case. The book reflects the changing nature of 'public' in recognising that a textbook in this area has to be made less technical and mechanistic and more appreciative of political economy.

The Handbook of Public Sector Economics builds an understanding of the role of public economics in public administration, public policy, and decision making. The handbook introduces a wide variety of current issues related to the public provision and production of goods and services. The volume documents the history of economics and fiscal doctrine, explores the theory of public goods and the structures from which resources are collected and expanded, and analyzes heavily debated issues of economics that are important to current and future practitioners of public policy and administration. It focuses on the effects of fiscal policy on savings and investment, consumer behavior, labor supply, wealth, property, and trade. Written in a simple and straightforward style, the initial chapters establish the foundation of public economics, with the subsequent chapters addressing the collection and distribution of government resources and market reactions to fiscal policies.

In The Political Economy of Public Sector Governance, Anthony Michael Bertelli introduces core ideas in positive political theory as they apply to public management and policy. Though recent literature that mathematically models relationships between politicians and public managers provides insight into contemporary public administration, the technical way these works present information limits their appeal. This book helps readers understand public-sector governance arrangements and the implications these arrangements have for public management practice and policy outcomes by presenting information in a non-technical way.

Public Sector Economics: Made Simple introduces the reader, step by step, clearly and methodically, to the concepts and principles of public sector economics. The functions and finance of central government, local authorities, and nationalized industries are examined within the framework of a national economy. Examples are given largely from the British economy but international comparisons are made. A large number of tables and diagrams are also provided so as to relate the theory to the real world. Comprised of 21 chapters, this book discusses the theory and practice of public finance, with emphasis on public expenditure, taxation, and the national debt. Fiscal policy with its economic, social, and political objectives is also considered and viewed in relation to monetary policy and prices and incomes policy. After an overview of economic systems and models, the book focuses on allocation of resources and provision of public goods; public expenditure in Britain; the theory of taxation and the tax system; taxes on income, profits, consumption, and capital; and taxable capacity, incidence of taxation, and the tax burden. Fiscal policy is analyzed in relation to economic growth, standard of living, and distribution of income and wealth. This monograph is intended for economists and students taking economics-related courses.
