Urban economics by Arthur O'Sullivan( Book )

112 editions published between 1990 and 2019 in 5 languages and held by 1,359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Like the seven previous editions, this edition provides a clear and concise presentation of the economic forces that: (a) cause the development of cities; (b) determine the spatial form of cities; (c) cause urban economies to grow or shrink; (d) generate urban problems such as poverty, crime, and congestion; (e) make the market for urban housing unique; and (f) shape the tax and spending policies of local government. In addition to developing the basic concepts of urban economics, the book uses economic analysis to evaluate the merits of policies designed to address our most vexing urban problems. The text is designed for use in undergraduate courses in urban economics and urban affairs. It could also be used for graduate courses in urban planning, public policy, and public administration. All of the economic concepts used in the book are covered in the typical intermediate microeconomics course, so students who have completed such a course will be able to move through the book at a rapid pace"--Publisher
Economics : principles and tools by Arthur O'Sullivan( Book )

100 editions published between 1998 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We began with the idea that an introductory economics course should be taught as if it is the last economics class a student will ever take. The best way to teach economics is to focus on a few key concepts and ideas and apply them repeatedly in different circumstances. We start the book with the five key principles of economics and then apply them throughout the book. This approach provides students with the big picture -- the framework of economic reasoning. We have kept the writing lean, the examples lively and topical, and the visuals exciting. - Preface
Property taxes and tax revolts : the legacy of Proposition 13 by Arthur O'Sullivan( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and held by 581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors begin by discussing the origins of four different historical episodes with property tax revolts and the nature of property tax systems throughout the world. They then examine the consequences of property tax limitations with a detailed analysis of the acquisition-value tax system passage of Proposition 13 established. New theoretical approaches and new evidence from a comprehensive empirical study are brought to bear on the California experience in order to highlight the key aspects of equity and efficiency of the property tax system. Since property taxes are the primary source of revenue for local governments, the authors compare and contrast the experiences of Massachusetts and California with regard to the evolution of local government following property tax limitations. Finally, the book considers alternatives for reform and lessons to avoid future property tax revolts

Economics : principles in action by Arthur O'Sullivan( Book )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of economics begins with the idea that people cannot have everything they need and want. To look at the world economically, we can focus on the decisions that people make. At its core, economics is the study of how people choose to use their limited resources. Because people act individually, in groups (such as businesses), and through governments, economists study each of these groups. - Publisher

[The authors] start the book with the five key principles of economics and then apply them throughout the book. This approach provides students with the big picture - the framework of economic reasoning. [The five key principles of economics are]: 1. The Principle of Opportunity Cost -- the opportunity cost of something is what you sacrifice to get it. 2. The Marginal Principle -- pick the level of an activity at which the marginal benefit equals the marginal cost. 3. The Principle of Diminishing Returns -- if we increase one input while holding the other inputs fixed, output will increase, but at a decreasing rate. 4. The Spillover Principle -- in some circumstances, decision makers do not bear all the cost or experience all the benefits from their decision. 5. The Reality Principle -- what matters to people is the real value of money or income - its purchasing power - not the face value of money or income. [The authors] use these principles to explain the logic underpinning the most important tools of economics.-Pref
