The Oxford Handbook of State and Local Government Finance

State and local government fiscal systems have increasingly become vulnerable to economic changes. Over the past three decades, state and local deficits during economic recession have been larger and deeper each time. The impact of the Great Recession and its aftermath of feeble growth and lingering high unemployment has been dramatic both in scope and intensity. Before the crisis, long-term structural deficits were persistent for both individual governments and the entire sector as spending plans and patterns outpaced governments' revenue-generating capacity. The revenue systems of these governments eroded while the workloads and scope on the expenditure side of the state and local system b...

State and Local Fiscal Policy

The last few decades have presented a new set of challenges and opportunities for public finances. Demographic trends have put substantial pressure on non-discretionary public expenditures such as health care, while legal challenges have put pressure on education financing.

The economic downturn further constrains state and local governments options for dealing with national trends. Constituents sentiment toward the size of government further exacerbates fiscal choices for state and local governments. In this broad and illuminating volume, experts on public finance d...
