Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Practitioner-oriented sampling of the major tools used to deal with current public-sector fiscal issues.

Directed at state and local financial managers, Government Budgeting presents, in a short and succinct manner, a sampling of the major tools used to deal with current fiscal problems. George M. Guess provides examples from a number of states and localities and explains how to use them in diverse situations. At the end of each chapter, cases, exercises and/or questions are provided for further study. The chapters cover the major topics needed by today’s practitioners: core concepts and definitions of budgeting and financial management; how to analyze the revenue budget and evaluate revenue sources; how one might plan expenditures and prepare an annual request; how capital projects should (and should not) be planned, analyzed, compared, placed into a capital improvements program, and financed; and the critical topic of budget implementation. Without claiming that practical tools can resolve every problem, the book suggests that if all stakeholders used such analytic tools the outcomes might be better for the general welfare.

“Informed and informative, Government Budgeting is exceptionally well written, organized and presented.” — Midwest Book Review

George M. Guess teaches public affairs at George Mason University. He is the coauthor (with Lance T. LeLoup) of Comparative Public Budgeting: Global Perspectives on Taxing and Spending, also published by SUNY Press.
