Featuring a general equilibrium framework that is both cohesive and versatile, the Second Edition of Public Finance: A Normative Theory brings new and updated information to this classic text. Through its concentration on the microeconomic theory of the public sector in the context of capitalist market economics it addresses the subjects traditionally at the heart of public sector economics, including public good theory, theory of taxation, welfare analysis, externalities, tax incidence, cost benefit analysis, and fiscal federalism. Its goal of providing a foundation, rather than attempting to present the most recent scholarship in detail, makes this Second Edition both a valuable text and a resource for professionals.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"...a detailed introduction to theoretical work on many of the core issues in contemporary public economics. Careful and comprehensive, it will provide readers with an ideal springboard to further research." James M. Poterba, Mitsui Professor of Economics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, USA "... outstanding in the breadth of its coverage, in the quality of exposition, and in the balance between theory and policy... especially good at melding newer approaches to the normative study of the public sector with traditional ones." Robin Boadway, Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada "I have hoped for years that Richard Tresch would revise his Public Finance text. This volume is well worth the wait. It is comprehensive, up-to-date, and very clearly written. It is a natural reading for a graduate course in public finance. It will also serve as a fine reference for specialists in the field." Harvey Rosen, Department of Economics, Princeton University, Princeton, USA
