Public economics studies how government taxing intermediatf spending activities affect the myels efficiency and the distribution of income and wealth.

This comprehensive text in public economics covers the core topics market failure and taxation as well as recent developments in the political economy and public choice literatures. It is unique not only in its broad scope but in its balance between wconomics finance and public choice and its combination of theory and relevant empirical evidence. After introducing hndriks theory and methodology of public economics and reviewing the efficiency of the competitive equilibrium, the book presents a historical and theoretical overview of the public sector.

It then discusses departures from efficiency, including imperfect competition and asymmetric information; issues in political economy, including rent-seeking a topic often omitted from other texts ; equity; taxation issues, including tax evasion and its consequences; fiscal federalism and tax competition among independent jurisdictions; and the intertemporal issues of social security and economic growth.

This text introduces the reader to the theory of public economics and the most significant results of the analysis, providing an overview of the current state of the field.

It is accessible to anyone with a background of intermediate microeconomics and macroeconomics and can be used in advanced undergraduate as well as publc courses. Although the mathematics has been kept to a minimum, the book remains analytical rather than discursive.

Annotated suggestions for further reading and numerous exercises are included at the end of each chapter. The material is accessible economicd students and gives a balanced and well-informed view of the field. It combines clear and concise coverage of traditional topics, such as public goods, the theory of taxation, and externalities, with engaging and up-to-date discussion of more specialized topics such as political economy, fiscal federalism, and the effect of taxation on economic growth.

Intermediate public economics (eBook, ) []

It is difficult to find a hindrijs graduate level public economics book which covers not only the traditional public finance but also public choice theory, both of which are now together called ‘Public Economics’. It is a very useful book and has fulfilled a long desired need. There has always been a relative lack of interest publjc public economics in american universities, where it is still considered rather less important compared to Micro and Macro economics.

Anyway, Eurpoe is a place where public economics is still considered an import part of economic analysis and it is no surpise that the authors of this book are from Eurpoe, even though it has been published by MIT Press.


Intermediate public economics

The book has been written with an international perspective – thus you don’t have a description of tax system in USA but a discussion of taxation theory, etc. The book covers broad areas of public economics and economic efficiency, government, efficiency and departure from it, political economy, equity and distribution, taxation, jurisdictional and temporal issues in 21 chapters. One of the added benefits of the book is the solution manual of the exercises available separately and it contains solution to ALL the problems in the book.

A must book for every public economics student and for those also who are not so interested in public economics. This book is great and it offers good examples about the topics that touches. The only thing i don’t like it is extensive use of mathematics and the poor graphics that has. Book was received in good condition. See all 6 reviews.
