about

From an institutional perspective, the book carries out comparative analysis of ‘the power of the purse.’ It explores cross-national differences, their determinants and their impact on fiscal policy. The empirical analysis is based on a dataset of legislative budgeting in all 30 OECD countries, a broader 80-country dataset, and case study evidence.
JOACHIM WEHNER is Lecturer in Public Policy in the Department of Government at the London School of Economics and Political Science, UK.
