by Hetherington, David.

Publisher: Surry Hills, N.S.W. Per Capita Australia 2013Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: October 2013 Per Capita research paper Includes bibliographic references p. 14Summary: This short paper explores the idea of productivity in public services. It begins by questioning the longstanding practice of equating government inputs with outputs and the fashionable notion of assumed efficiency dividends. It then considers new approaches popular amongst philanthropists known as social impact investment, and specifically the social impact bond. After examining existing examples of social impact investment, it asks whether public service agencies could themselves form ventures to deliver outcomes under social impact bonds. Finally, the paper identifies several potential opportunities for social impact bonds which might be delivered by public sector agencies in Australia.Availability: (1)

Australia's fiscal straightjacket : eight myths about tax and public debt which are holding us back /

by Argy, Fred | Centre for Policy Development (CPD).

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Centre for Policy Development 2007Description: PDF.Other title: Centre for Policy Development. Occasional paper ; no. 4.Summary: The Howard Government and Rudd's Labor opposition have both embraced the notion that in general tax rates and public debt levels should not increase. This fiscal strategy is lazy and timid policy, not good governance. It is impeding the Government?s capacity to meet the nation?s infrastructure needs, forcing it to adopt financing options that are economically less efficient and denying Australians a genuine, well informed choice on the appropriate balance between public and private goods. The fiscal straightjacket is based on several myths about the impact of taxation and government borrowing.Availability: No items available

Comparing public spending and priorities across OECD countries /

by Dewan, Sabina | Ettlinger, Michael.

Publisher: Washington, DC Centre for American Progress 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: This descriptive study examines how OECD countries have addressed the current economic situation through their fiscal balance sheets, and then goes on to consider similarities and differences in public spending across OECD countries through the prism of economic and social objectives. Countries are compared according to three relative measures of government spending: spending as a share of GDP, spending per capita, and spending by category as a percentage of total government expenditure. ; There are several reasons countries run surpluses, although OECD countries generally run deficits, or small surpluses. Fiscal deficits can grow quickly during an economic crisis such as the current one, which poses an economic and political problem. But they are both inevitable and necessary to nurse the economy back to health. There is little disagreement that a balanced budget is desirable in the long term, however.Availability: (1)
