A not-so-dismal science : a broader view of economies and societies by Mancur Olson( Book )

23 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The influence of economic thinking in other social sciences is bringing about a theoretical integration of all the social sciences under one overarching paradigm." "The chapters of this book illustrate the intellectual advances that account for this unified view of economies and societies. The key theme which emerges is the interaction between political, economic, legal, and social forces. Examples of this include the political influence of corruption and special interest groups, the organizational structure of a government, the effect of commercial law, and the differences between communities with high and low social fragmentation. All these affect and are affected by economic conditions. The editors and contributors of A Not-so-Dismal Science discuss and analyze these and many other factors, leading to the conclusion that economics is at the forefront of the movement toward a unified social science."--Page 4 of cover

Decentralization and Governance Does Decentralization Improve Public Service Delivery? by Satu Kahkonen( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Decentralization holds a lot of promise, but whether it improves public service delivery depends on the institutional arrangements governing its implementation. Several conditions must be met before the full benefits of decentralization can be reaped. First, for decentralization to increase allocative and productive efficiency, local governments need to have the authority to respond to local demand as well as adequate mechanisms for accountability. Because granting authority without accountability can lead to corruption and lower productive efficiency, decentralization needs to be accompanied by reforms that increase the transparency and accountability of local government. Second, functions need to be devolved to a low enough level of government for allocative efficiency to increase as a result of decentralization. Low-level governments are likely to be aware of local preferences and, if able to do so, are likely to adjust service delivery accordingly. Third, citizens should have channels to communicate their preferences and get their voices heard in local governments. But the existence of such channels is not enough. To effectively influence public policies and oversee local governments, citizens need to have information about government policies and activities. The media play a crucial role in this area

Public Expenditure Policies in Southeast Europe. World Bank Working Paper, No. 134( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The countries of Southeast Europe have undergone a significant transition over the past decade. Helped by macroeconomic stabilization and efforts in advancing structural reforms, real GDP growth has picked up this century. Fiscal adjustment has been an integral part of the transition. Expenditure cuts have helped trim spending relative to GDP in most countries in the region and cut fiscal deficits everywhere except in Serbia. Progress in fiscal consolidation has been substantial, but in several of the countries the government??s presence in the economy remains oversized. Costs related to advancing EU integration and completing reforms are expected to generate further pressures for public spending. Creating the fiscal space for addressing such pressures would require a further reduction in existing spending, given that there is still scope (or wisdom, for that matter) for increasing tax rates. The report identifies key remaining challenges and proposes a menu of options in further reforms in sectors that account for the largest shares of public spending, and where reforms are likely to have significant budgetary implications. The sectors discussed in the report are social protection, health, education, public administration, and infrastructure
