Special Issue "Public Finance and Budgeting"
A special issue of Economies (ISSN 2227-7099).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (29 September 2019).
Interests: My research agenda investigates the areas of public budgeting, finance and financial management with special emphasis on the role of stakeholders in resource allocation decisions. I also like to do short-term “Torn from the Headlines” research to understand more about how well government works or why people think government does not work the way it should.
Interest in public finance and budgeting crosses many academic disciplines, especially when partnerships and collaborations between organizations across sectors are necessary. This Special Issue of Economies seeks a collection of high-quality studies investigating Public Private Partnerships (P3s or PPP) and, in particular, the structure, transparency, accountability and intergenerational equity of funding arrangements. We invite theoretical and empirical research articles that explore economic development targets, incentives and strategies. Inquiries into how best to accommodate a hybrid institutional logic, where public value is produced via an emphasis on the financial efficiency of a net profit logic, are encouraged. Original papers relating to how sub-national and local governments pursue mutually beneficial opportunities for sustainable economic development are especially encouraged.
