The book seeks to cover most aspects of the subject: public goods, externalities, social justice and redistribution, taxation and fiscal federalism and thus tries to provide a solid foundation on which critical thinking about the responsibilities and limitations of government can be based. Each chapter strives to study whether private sector could undertake the relevant activities in a more efficient and equitable way and thus if government involvement is really needed. Chapters conclude with selective, annotated reading list and questions for discussion. The reading lists contain anappropriate mixture of classical readings and the latest research findings. By drawing on insights from normative public finance, public choice, and new political economy, the book aims to give a boost to undergraduate and graduate teaching in public finance in an engaging, clear, and well-organized fashion. A significant contribution of the book is to strike a fine balancebetween normative and positive aspects of public finance.The book with be also be useful for students appearing for NET and competitive examinations such as IES and IAS.
