Richard Musgrave is one of the most eminent public finance economists of our time. In this third volume of essays, Professor Musgrave once more takes a broad view of fiscal institutions, their nature and functions. Traditions of fiscal theory and their impact on the author's work are discussed and their linkage to theories of the state and of distributive justice are examined. Selected topics include: the foundations of public finance, equity in taxation, tax reform, federalism and budget growth. Public Finance in a Democratic Society will be of interest to scholars and students of public finance, political economy and public policy.

`Richard Musgrave is arguably the leading public finance scholar of his generation. This book is a testament to his outstanding contribution to his discipline. Its 28 chapters reproduce selected conference papers, journal articles, essays, and commentaries by Musgrave that have been published over his long and distinguished career. . . The smooth prose and compelling content of the chapters are imbued throughout with Musgrave's deep and passionate commitment to the institutions of the liberal welfare state.' -- Tim Edgar, Canadian Tax Journal
