This text serves as a useful supplement to public finance textbooks, helping students to build and weigh arguments, to identify strengths and weaknesses of opposing viewpoints, and ultimately to draw their own conclusions. Its two main objectives are to present policy issues, allowing students an opportunity to apply the theory discussed in class, and to show students how material is developed in the literature by having them read some of the classics and contemporary contributions. The readings in this book are not tied to any one text. The authors make certain, via a correlation guide in the front of the text, that each selection corresponds to at least one chapter in each of the major textbooks and that no text chapter is without a supplementary reading.
