In this updated text on public finance for undergraduates and for public administration graduate programs, Rosen (economics and business policy, Princeton U.) aims to keep the subject rooted in reality by describing institutional and legal settings in detail and by emphasizing links between economic analysis and current political issues. He interweaves institutional, theoretical, and econometric material in his coverage of public expenditure analysis, tax analysis, the United States revenue system, and multigovernment public finance. For those who need a refresher, material on basic microeconomic theory is appended, including explanation of indifference curve analysis, the supply and demand model, marginal analysis, and consumer and producer surplus.
