About the Author:

John M. Quigley is Professor of Economics and Public Policy and Chairman of the Department of Economics at the University of California, Berkeley.

Eugene Smolensky is Professor of Public Policy and Dean of the Graduate School of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley.

Review:

The standard of the papers is consistently high...They are not simply surveys of recent developments: they also make new contributions. Specialists in public economics will find this volume invaluable, and it also provides an excellent account of the current state of play in the subject for non-specialists. (Economic Journal)

An important public finance publication...This work is must reading for practitioners. (Social and Behavioral Sciences)

Book Description HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS, United States, 2000. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This text tackles major problems confronting the American President, Congress and the American people: how can the way tax money is spent be improved, the efficiency of the economy be increased, and the distribution of income changed in socially desirable ways? This text provides a survey of the outstanding issues in public finance, reporting advances in the application of economic principles to taxation and public expenditure, and also drawing attention to fertile areas for future research. Public finance is too narrow a term to describe this discipline, for it covers most of the economic issues in which governments are involved: the provision of public goods (such as roads, schooling and national defence), taxation (including questions of equity and efficiency), expenditures (including cost-benefit analysis), and the allocation of economic decision making among different levels of government (fiscal federalism). In Modern Public Finance , senior scholars in the field review and synthesize theoretical developments in important areas - optimal taxation, public sector dynamics, distribution theory and club theory, to name a few - which challenge the reader to understand and improve public policy. Each chapter highlights original research by a recognized leader in the field, relates this work to cumulative developments, and frames important questions for further study. Modern Public Finance should be of importance to graduate students and faculty in university and non-university research centres, and to economists who specialize in the field.
