Fiscal Administration is based on two principles:
- readers will clearly understand the details of where the money for public budgets comes from; and
- to learn public finance and budgeting, readers must "run the numbers."
John Mikesell - an authority on the revenue side of public finance - focuses on his area of specialty, giving readers detailed instruction that will equip them to deal with the complex issues and calculations they encounter in public organizations.
In most chapters, this book includes questions and exercises that require calculations to get specific answers, as well as "Cases for Discussion" and "Sidebars" that supplement the regular text with more in-depth treatment of key topics. This edition also includes the most recent federal budget information, as well as the latest federal government fiscal data.
