Our research examines three main themes:
- How the government raises revenue through taxes and borrowing, and on how the government disburses those funds.
- How the government plans, controls, and accounts for such activities through budgeting and accounting, as well as the design and administration of all of these functions.
- The impact of public sector activities on the economic behavior of individuals, firms, nonprofit organizations, and markets, and on economic efficiency.
