Public Economics


Public economics (or economics of the public sector) is the study of economic issues concerning the public sector (including government) and its interface with the private sector (including households, businesses, and markets) in a mixed economy. It has been described as an amalgam of two older fields, (applied) public finance and welfare economics, each edging toward disrepute, to the benefit of both.

It was impossible for me in these Lectures, to bring forward as fully as I could have wi...

The language is modernized wherever necessary, and many unfamiliar words have been replaced by such as are more familiar to children; the spelling also has been brought to the reader's standard, except in a few cases where the old form seemed quaint and not likely to affect a child's-habits of writing. Nothing has anywhere been ...

By: Robert E. Rubin

Government Reference Publication

Paradoxist Distiches

By: Florentin Smarandache

The School of Paradoxist Literature, which evolved around 1980s, continues through these bi-verses closed in a new lyric exact formula, but with an opening to essence. For this kind of procedural poems one can elaborate mathematical algorithms and implement them in a computer: but, it...
