Public Sector Economics for Developing Countries discusses the impact of the public sector in economic development. This comprehensive work analyses public goods, market failure, the role of government, public choice and political business cycles, government revenues and expenditures, with special reference to developing countries. Howard, La Foucade and Scott raise theoretical and empirical issues relating to the role of public expenditure growth, structural adjustment and taxation. They also explore issues neglected in traditional texts on the public sector, such as poverty alleviation, tax administration and the operation of the value-added tax in developing countries.

The first edition of Public Sector Economics for Developing Countries (2001) has been revised, expanded and updated to ensure its continued relevance. This accessible, well-illustrated text is a valuable addition to the literature on the role of government and the political economy of decision making.
