In Modern Public Finance, senior scholars in the field review and synthesize recent theoretical developments in important areas—optimal taxation, public sector dynamics, distribution theory, and club theory, to name a few—which challenge us to understand and improve public policy. Each chapter highlights original research by a recognized leader in the field, relates this work to cumulative developments, and frames important questions for further study.
