Introducing… Public Finance, 10th Global Edition,
by Harvey S. Rosen and Ted Gayer
Rosen and Gayer's Public Finance provides the economic tools necessary to analyse government expenditure and tax policies and, along the way, takes students to the frontiers of current research and policy. While the information presented is cutting edge and reflects the work of economists currently active in the field, the approach makes the text accessible to undergraduates whose only prior exposure to economics is at the introductory level.
The authors' years of policy experience have convinced them that modern public finance provides a practical and invaluable framework for thinking about policy issues. The goal is simple: to emphasise the links between sound economics and the analysis of real-world policy problems.
