Abstract:

"The Marginal Cost of Public Funds: Theory and Applications develops the basic theory of the MCF within the framework of public economics and shows how it is related to the traditional measures of the efficiency loss from distortionary taxation. The MCF concept is then applied to the major sources of revenues for governments - sales and excise taxes, taxes on labor income, taxes on the return to capital, public sector borrowing and intergovernmental grants. This book will be and essential reference for economists and public policy analysis both in and out of government. Exercises and recommendations for further reading at the end of each main chapter highlight is usefulness as a supplementary text in advanced undergraduate or graduate courses in public economics."--BOOK JACKET.
