The first introductory public policy text with a strong economics perspective.

A new textbook by Charles Wheelan, author of Naked Economics, Introduction to Public Policy uses economic principles to demonstrate that sound public policy occurs when unfettered private markets provide the greatest good for the greatest number. Only when it does not do this is government intervention needed.

About the Author:

Charles Wheelan is the author of the best-selling Naked Statistics and Naked Economics and is a former correspondent for The Economist. He teaches public policy and economics at Dartmouth College and lives in Hanover, New Hampshire, with his family.

Review:

“By far the best textbook for a course in undergraduate public policy. I have been looking for a text that really incorporates economics into the study of public policy. One cannot truly understand the politics behind policy, and how to analyze policies, without having a basic background in economics, especially microeconomics...Each chapter is beautifully written... I am looking forward to using this text.”
- Daniel Scheller, The Florida State University

“Wheelan’s new text is indeed one of the most fluidly written, engaging, sometimes jaunty and sometimes challenging books on the subject. My students will see many topics come alive with this analytical yet unpretentious treatment of public policy principles. The author draws the students into the questions and then turns them toward economics and public-policy analysis concepts.”
- Gregory Gleason, The University of New Mexico
