'Dalton has succeeded in expressing general economic concepts in simple language' The Economist.

The 1971 edition of this famous textbook includes recent material to the general survey on the theory of taxation, other forms of public revenue, public expenditure and public debts. There are chapters on modern theories of budgetary policy and the controversial cheap money policy, pursued by the author when he was in charge of the British Treasury from 1945-1947.
