Public finance in theory and practice by A. R Prest( Book )

128 editions published between 1960 and 1986 in 3 languages and held by 1,140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discussion of the various aspects and meanings of public finance has a long history in the works of economists. If we look at Adam Smith's Wealth Nations we find a whole section (Book V) devoted to 'the revenue of the Sovereign or Commoonwealth'. Similarly, the title of Ricardo's main work was, significantly enough, The Principles of Political Economy and taxation. With such a long history, we are likley to learn a good deal about the subject-matter of public finance if we start by running quickly over the writings of some of the great economists of the past

Public finance in underdeveloped countries by A. R Prest( Book )

79 editions published between 1962 and 1993 in 3 languages and held by 967 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

THE TITLE Public Finance in Undeveloped Countries is open to many possible interpretations and so it would be as well to clarify our own at the beginning. First at all, Public Finance can, at one extreme, be taken to cover the general subject of Central Government economic planning-a discussion of the merits and demerits of having a plan on the Indian model, ofr instance, or the most appropriate way of constructing such a policy framework. Another possibility would be to deal with purely descriptive matters-which sorts of taxes and expenditures one finds in underveloped countries, why the institutional arrangements differ and so on. These two illustrations will be sufficient to show that it is quite impossible to cover all aspects of public finance in the course of a short survey and so we must be quite deliberately and openly selective. To thos end we shall not have a great deal to say about the optimum size and composition of Government expenditures, the merits of detailed development planning and so on. We shall rather take the present position of Government expenditures as we find it in various countries, and inquire into some of the difficulties which arise in financing it, the relative merits of the various possible taxes and so on

Intergovernmental financial relations in the United Kingdom by A. R Prest( Book )

11 editions published in 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main emphasis is on the financial relations between central and local government in the United Kingdom. The opportunity is taken to draw on the large amount of information published in 1976 as a consequence of the first major official inquiry into local finances for some fifty years. Attention is also given to the financial implications of the proposals for devolution of power to new Scottish and Welsh Assemblies. Although the mono graph primarily relates to intergovernmental financial matters in the U.K., parallels are drawn from time to time with other countries and there is also some examination of the common underlying theoretical issues. After holding academic posts in the Universities of Cambridge and Manchester, the author took up his present position as Professor of Economics (with special reference to the Public Sector) at the London School of Economics in 1970. He has written a variety of books and articles in the field of public finance and has been both a Visiting Professor and a Visiting Fellow of the Australian National University
