    The Economics of Evaluation in Public Programs

    Edited by Albert N. Link, John T. Scott
    This research collection illustrates the wide range of methodologies and methods available for the evaluation of public programs.

  7. Developments in the Economics of Privatization and Regulation

    Developments in the Economics of Privatization and Regulation

    Edited by Michael A. Crew, David Parker
    Regulatory economics has become increasingly important over the last quarter of a century, in part as a result of the wave of privatization, starting in the UK, which made the regulation of monopoly of much greater interest. The discipline has also become more rigorous, increasingly employing powerful analytical and econometric methods. This volume brings together some of the leading contributions to the literature on this subject. The book is an invaluable resource for scholars, policymakers and regulators in the study of privatization and regulation. Learn More

  8. Recent Developments in Monopoly and Competition Policy

    Recent Developments in Monopoly and Competition Policy

    Edited by George Norman
    The formulation and application of competition policy presents significant challenges. These include showing that proposed mergers are anticompetitive, proving that firms are members of cartels and defending apparently restrictive vertical agreements. The editor has selected key papers that illustrate how far we have come towards meeting these challenges. They provide comprehensive coverage of the theory that underpins competition policy, and of the econometric tests that demonstrate its effects and violations. This timely book will be an invaluable resource to researchers and practitioners alike with an interest in this important subject. Learn More

    Edited by Ruth Towse
    This volume is a compilation by one of the most experienced editors in the field of published articles on cultural economics.

  10. Public Facilities Planning

    Public Facilities Planning

    Edited by Lily Kiminami, Kenneth Button, Peter Nijkamp
    This important book brings together a careful selection of the major works in planning which relate to the provision of public facilities – such as recreation grounds, parks and sports arenas. The opening sections present classic, theoretic papers that lay both the general and the specific foundations for why some facilities are treated outside of the market. Key topics such as institutional issues, the role of the private sector, and the assessment and evaluation of public facilities planning and financing are then examined. Finally, the volume looks at some of the more novel approaches that are emerging in the provision of public facilities, and concludes with a selection of case studies that demonstrate the application of a set of planning approaches.

  11. The Economics of the Mass Media

    The Economics of the Mass Media

    Edited by Gillian Doyle
    The study of the mass media has flourished over recent decades. Whereas media and communications have traditionally been studied via the lens of sociology or other non-economic disciplines, the perspectives and frameworks offered by economics are now properly recognised as central to our understanding of the organization and behaviour of the mass media – a fact reflected in this unique collection. As more and more economists have turned their attention to media firms and industries, a rich and diverse body of literature has emerged. The articles drawn together in this volume present a survey of the papers that have contributed in important ways to this developing field of enquiry. Learn More

  18. The Economics of Nonprofit Enterprises

    The Economics of Nonprofit Enterprises

    Edited by Richard Steinberg
    The literature on nonprofit organizations can be said to have developed in three waves. The first wave asserted some plausible objectives for a nonprofit organization possessing monopoly power and examined the subsequent implications for organizational behaviour; the second looked more broadly at the role of nonprofit organizations in a wider economy as they compete or collaborate with for-profit firms and government agencies; the third wave began the development of integrated theories in which the objectives of nonprofit organizations emerge endogenously within an environment potentially containing organizations from other sectors. The Economics of Nonprofit Enterprises brings together some of the most important previously published articles which investigate and elucidate these phases. Learn More
