Abstract

Economics of the Public Sector, Fourth Edition, focuses on the heavily changed, post-global recession world. This new, modern approach includes a discussion on global public goods in Chapter 5, which addresses the difficulty of coping with public health and security threats when they transcend government coping mechanisms, while Chapter 8 examines corporatization and the transition from government enterprise to private enterprise.
