9780202361512: Public Expenditure

In all highly industrialized countries public expenditures are a substantial and growing share of total economic activity. The authors integrate normative and positive theory and empirical analysis of public expenditure, concentrating on the optimal provision of public goods and the estimation of their costs and effects. This volume emphasizes the techniques that are available for reaching collective decisions about the provision of public goods and stresses the importance of income distribution and intergovernmental fiscal relations. In a mixed economy, where the public sector is growing faster than the private sector, the nature of public expenditures must be closely evaluated and studied. This book is designed to focus on and delineate controversies about public expenditure--to define what it is, analyze its function, show how it operates, and finally to evaluate research on this important subject.

The book considers the theories of leading economists (Kenneth Arrow, Lionel Robbins, Carl Shoup, James Buchanan, Paul Samuelson, Richard Musgrave, and others) in arriving at a clear statement of theory in its application to operational problems. Appropriate attention is paid to current techniques such as program budgeting, cost-benefit analysis, and the analysis of the determinants of public expenditure. The book is unique in its emphasis on the integration and critique of contemporary theories of public expenditure, of distributional concerns, and of the political framework of public expenditure decisions. It provides a necessary resource for professional economists required to deal with public expenditure problems in research or practice.

Review:

“Professors Burkhead and Minder have implicitly staked a claim for public expenditure to be regarded not merely as a major department of public finance but as a major branch of economics.”

—R. Houghton, The Economic Journal

“Burkhead and Miner have done an excellent piece of work. The book is well written and they have been very helpful in indicating to the reader what they are attempting to do at the beginning of a section as well as summarizing the more difficult sections.”

—J. A. Johnson, The Canadian Journal of Economics

“This book bears ample testimony to the enormous accumulation of literature on the economics of the public sector over the past decade—a literature which has shifted dramatically to concentrate on how public resources are or should be expended rather than how they are raised. Burkhead and Miner provide us with a consolidated, authoritative synthesis of this vast literature.”

—Martin C. McGuire, The Journal of Finance

“This book is an extraordinarily thorough and compact discussion of the nature of the public sector, the pure theory of public expenditure under partial and general equilibrium assumptions, the vexed problems of the “market” for public goods, the politics of collective choice, program budgeting, benefit-cost analysis, fiscal federalism, and conclusions with respect to ‘the determinants and consequences of public expenditures.’”

—Kenyon E. Poole, Journal of Economic Literature
