About this product
- DescriptionThere is a long-standing difference amongst public ecomists between those who think that collective choice must be formally ackwledged, and those who derive their policy recommendations from a social planning framework in which politics plays role. The purpose of this book is to contribute to a meaningful dialogue between these two groups, in the belief that the future of both political ecomy and of rmative public finance lies somewhere between the two approaches. Some of the specific questions addressed in the book include: does public finance need political ecomy? Should collective choice play a role in the standard of reference used in rmative public finance? What is a 'failure' in a n-market or policy process? And what have we learned about the theory and practice of public finance from three decades of empirical research on public choice? The book also provides a practitioner's view of the political ecomy of redistribution. The distinguished list of authors, many of whom are pre-eminent in their fields, includes Robin Boadway, Geoffrey Brennan, Albert Breton, Anibal Cavaco Silva, Walter Hettich, Gebhard Kirchgassner, Dennis Mueller, William Niskanen, Hirofumi Shibata, Eugene Smolensky, Heinrich Ursprung, Frans van Winden, Stanley Winer and Donald Wittman. The importance of political ecomy to any understanding of why public policy evolves as it does is w widely accepted by public finance scholars and practitioners. This book goes a step further by considering the role of collective choice in defining what constitutes 'good' or 'better' policy. It will be an essential companion for all scholars of public finance and political ecomy.
