Handbook of Public Sector Economics by Donijo Robbins pdf free download. The Handbook of Public Sector Economics is first and foremost a
textbook for graduate students in public administration and public policy. Although most handbooks are used as reference texts, this
particular handbook was proposed and written as a textbook to be used as the primary book in a graduate public economics course or
an important secondary or supplementary book in a public finance or public policy course in a program where a course in public economics is not offered. The primary goal of this book is to contribute to the use and understanding of public economics and its role in
public administration, public policy, and decision making.

The book exposes students of public policy and administration to a wide array of current issues surrounding the public provision and production of goods and services. Three major reasons, I believe, explain the usefulness of such a text. First, the book documents the history of economics and fiscal doctrine and their place in public policy and administration. Second, it provides a comprehensive exploration of the theory of public goods and the structures from which resources are collected and expended. Finally, it explores the emerging and heavily-debated issues of economics that are important to students, faculty, and practitioners; for example, the effects of fiscal policies on saving and investment, consumer behavior, labor supply, wealth, property, and trade.

These important reasons guided the development and organization of this text. Unlike textbooks, this handbook has no pictures, unless a supply and demand figure is considered a picture. Another constraint is that not all issues of public economics are included; for example, specialization and the different market systems are not discussed. My rationale for leaving out such topics, albeit important, rests on a belief that most graduate students in public administration and public policy have been exposed to these subjects in an undergraduate economics course. If not, consulting an undergraduate introductory text should clear up questions that this book does not
address.

Each chapter was written specifically for this book and in a manner that is simple and straightforward; as such the text is easy to follow and understand. Although each chapter could stand alone, the flow of the book was put together in such a way that the first two parts establish the foundation of public economics. In addition, each part substantiates the aforementioned reasons for this book. Part I introduces public economics, fiscal doctrine, and the role of democracy and bureaucracy within the economic framework.

Lynn C. Burbridge begins, in Chapter 1, with the history of economics and its doctrines from the Classical economists to the Marxists.
Fiscal systems and functions are presented by William Voorhees in Chapter 2. Together, the first two chapters summarize the theory and practice of fiscal doctrine. In Chapter 3, Jane Beckett-Camarata addresses market efficiency and failure within the realm of democratic decision-making. Chapter 4 concludes Part I with Patricia Moore outlining the role of bureaucracy and bureaucrats.

Part II focuses on the theory of public goods. Paul C. Trogen defines public goods and Robert J. Eger III provides a detailed analysis of the provision and production of public goods in Chapters 5 and 6, respectively. Part III addresses the collection and distribution of government resources. In Chapter 7, Carol Ebdon explains revenue sources, the equity and efficiency of collecting revenues, and current trends and implications.
