El sector público
(The public sector)
This monograph provides clear and concise insight into the history of the public purse and the ideas that almost every civilization has developed with regard to it. It also carries out a brief analysis of the role played by the public sector in the light of the main schools of economic thought, from ancient times through to the most recent contributions of the early 21st century.
A key summary of how economists –in the broadest sense of the term, from the Egypt of the pharaohs to contemporary social thought– have interpreted the economics of the public sector, an institution that represents, in almost all developed countries, around fifty percent of total economic activity. With this work, the authors help us to understand what is happening today and what may come to pass in the immediate future.
