Public Finance in Underdeveloped Countries

Excerpt

This book is based on a series of seven lectures delivered at the Centro de Estudos de Estatistica Económica, Lisbon, in April 1961. The main body of the text is a revised and expanded version of the original lectures. The Appendices to the various chapters are reprints from previous work, apart from Chapter 6, Appendix II.

My first debt is to Professor C. Alves Martins, the Director of the Centro, and his colleagues who provided the original stimulus to write the lectures and gave me some, valuable comments on them. Secondly, I have to thank Professor P. T. Bauer for many acute and penetrating comments. I also benefited greatly from the discussion of some of the chapters by the members of the Public Finance Workshop of Columbia University. Finally, I am indebted to the Department of Technical Co-operation, the Editors of the Economic Journal and Messrs Allen and Unwin for permission to reprint extracts from previous work.
