Fiscal Challenges: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Budget Policy brings together leading experts from a range of disciplines to explore the problems of budget policy. The authors, including top economists, political scientists, historians, psychologists, and legal scholars, together provide a unique, multidisciplinary introduction to the subject. In addition to in-depth analysis of congressional budget procedures and the economics of federal deficits and debt, Fiscal Challenges explores important recent developments in budget policy at the state level and in the European Union.


"The works are all accessible to the nonexpert..., and generally focus on providing a sound introduction to their topic. An interesting feature of the work that reflects its intended use as textbook: each chapter is followed by a series of discussion questions that deal with the chapter topic. Recommended."
