As in modern macroeconomics, individual citizens behave rationally, their preferences over economic outcomes inducing preferences over policy. The international evidence suggests that some aspects of the theories apply, although definitive conclusions are — as we might expect — hard to come by. Such spillovers naturally raise the possibility of inefficiencies: national policymakers, who set their fiscal and monetary policies to maximize a domestic objective, but ignoring the externalities that they impose on other countries, may find themselves in equilibria that entail collective irrationality. Unfortunately, only idiosyncratic views about the benefits from public expenditures can be invoked to justify expenditures-conservatism, implying that target-conservative agents are also weight-conservative. What determines the size and form of redistributive programs, the extent and type of public goods provision, the burden of taxation across alternative tax bases, the size of government deficits, and the stance of monetary policy during the course of business and electoral cycles?

Based on differences in productivity, income, and expected returns of the project produced all positively correlated , individuals also have different preferred policies. The authors outline a common method of analysis, establish several new results, and identify the main outstanding problems. An opportunistic incumbent is also likely to find it costlier to run a primary deficit higher than a specified threshold level than a partisan one.

Stevenson, Faculty Use and Justification of Extra Credit: No Middle Ground? The chapter presents a detailed discussion on the fiscal policy. We then survey some recent work along these lines, which argues that more inequality leads to slower growth. Instead of looking at policy as an end product, the contributors approach policy as an ongoing process of revised goals, changes in tactics, and political pressures. Motivated by this evidence, we develop a model where weak institutions entail low accountability of purchasing officers, thus they have low incentives to pursue the mandated task of monitoring the execution of contracts, even if no bribery occurs.

Osberg, Psychology is Not Just Common Sense: An Introductory Psychology Demonstration. McCann, Student Perspectives on the First Day of Class. The strategic manipulation of fiscal policy in the context of winning elections is a hotly debated issue in economics and political economy. As in public choice, the delegation of policy decisions to elected representatives may give rise to agency problems between voters and politicians.

We firstly provide some empirical evidence on public works contracts managed by a large sample of Italian municipalities, showing that performance measures of public works execution are associated with the quality of local institutional environment in which they are executed. And, as in rational choice, political institutions shape the procedures for setting policy and electing politicians. Thus, in case of anti-incumbency with opportunism, primary deficit and voting support fall over time. We study the effect of various incentive constraints on the policy making process, such as lack of credibility, political opportunism, political ideology, and divided government.
