Harvey Rosen's up-to-date "Public Finance" continues to be the market-leading book, taking its readers to the frontiers of current research, yet remaining accessible to undergraduates. Although it draws upon the latest research, the book never loses sight of the reality it is supposed to describe, always drawing the links between economic analysis and current political issues. By removing the material on accounting issues from the previous chapter 2, the text now reaches the more important material more quickly, thereby engaging the student immediately. There is more discussion on education, including the effects of education on subsequent income and the effect of early intervention programmes, and the section on healthcare issues has been expanded.

Chapters 1 and 2 now combined. By removing the material on accounting issues from the previous Chapter 2, the text now gets to the more important material more quickly, thereby engaging the student immediately.
Welfare Economics Coverage Revised. The 2nd welfare theorem is now introduced in Chapter 3 and in the same chapter the assumptions behind the 1st welfare theorem are introduced at an earlier stage. In Chapter 8, much new material on the recent welfare reform has been included. The chapter has been re-organized so that the basic issues in welfare program design are all put together in the same section. These changes not only keep the text current and expose students to today's issues and policies, but also will make the book easier to learn from.
Education Coverage Updated. In Chapter 4, for example, more discussion on education, including the effects on of education on subsequent income and the effect of early intervention programs, has been added. In Chapter 11, an entirely new extended cost-benefit example dealing with education has been included. In Chapter 20, there is more material on education and whether the U.S. system of financing education fits into the normative model of federalism. Education is becoming an ever more prominent item on the national policy agenda; the sixth edition of Public Finance keeps your students abreast of the debate.
Healthcare Issues Expanded. In Chapter 10, the material on reform options for Medicare has been beefed up, and now hospice care and Medical Savings Accounts, a controversial new proposal are discussed. Healthcare issues are a major topic in the media and in Washington today; by this added coverage, Rosen continues to teach not only the most current but also the most pressing issues.
Taxation and Budget Debates. Chapter 6 now discusses the Budget Enforcement Act and recent research on how differences in state balanced budget rules affect state spending. Chapter 12 explores the widely-quoted figures produced by the Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) on the incidence of the federal tax system and a critique. The controversy over elimination of estate tax, a hot current political debate, is now discussed in Chapter 19.
The text continues to introduce readers the latest research. While accessible to undergraduates, the text's approach is shared by most active economists. The approach is modern, theoretical, and empirical.
The author integrates the analysis of government spending and taxing closely with economic theory.
The results of econometric models are used to help the student understand how expenditure and tax policies affect individual behavior and how the government itself sets policies.
Methodological and substantive controversies are discussed at length. The author subscribes to "full disclosure" not only in the securities market but in the idea market as well.
The relevant institutional and legal settings are described in detail and the links between economic analysis and current political issues are emphasized.
