Public Sector Budgets provides an in-depth analysis of budget decision-making in a comparative setting, focusing on the experience of several countries including the US, Canada, Germany and the UK. Professor Ott seeks to uncover the interrelationships between budget outcomes and budget modality through a rigorous and insightful comparative analysis. Beginning with an up-to-date study of the US public sector, the political economy of budgeting at the federal level and the federal budget structure, the volume continues with an overview of issues and case studies of budgeting in two federal systems of government, Canada and Germany, and one unitary form of government, the UK. The final part of the volume deals with public sector deficits and the link between public sector capital formation and economic growth.
