FISCAL ADMINISTRATION, Eighth Edition, is based on two principles: that students must understand precisely where the money for public budgets comes from; and that, to learn public finance and budgeting, students must "run the numbers." John L. Mikesell--an authority on the revenue side of public finance--gives students detailed instruction to equip them to deal with the complex issues and calculations they will encounter in the field. In most chapters, Mikesell includes questions and exercises that require calculations to get specific answers. Also included are "Cases for Discussion" and "Sidebars" that supplement the regular text with more in-depth treatment of key topics. This new edition includes the budget information from the Obama administration and the latest federal government fiscal data.
