Rosen provides a modern treatment of the theory of public finance and has a thorough discussion of empirical issues. The 4th Canadian edition continues to integrate the introduction to tax with expenditure decisions so that students begin to develop an understanding of tax issues early. The 4th Canadian edition also provides an extensive analysis of the federal-provincial dimension of the public sector in Canada.
