Public Finance and Public Choice

Analytical Perspectives

Third Edition

John Cullis and Philip Jones

  • The diagrammatic approach provides a solid grounding in public economics without overwhelming the reader with unnecessary maths.
  • Analyses the theory from public choice and behavioural public finance perspectives, critically examining what governments actually do in practice by using psychological research to better understand economic decisions.
  • Sets the theory in the context of the European environment, where relevant, to ensure that students can see the application of the theory in their own government.

New to this Edition:

  • A new chapter on behavioural public finance introduces students to this topical area of research.
  • Developments in the area of pension provision have been added.
  • Environmental issues and climate change are now covered, owing to their increasing importance to the government.
