Product Description

Introduction to the Management of Public Finance: A South African perspective is an introductory work on public financial management for undergraduate students at universities, technikons and technical colleges. It is an abstract of the same topics covered in Public Financial Management, but couched in simpler terms. Greater emphasis is placed on facts and theories than the philosophy of the subject. Each chapter can serve as an individual lecture, since it starts with a study goal and learning objectives and ends with possible examination questions.

This text lays a sound foundation for undergraduate study of public financial management and the content can be outlined briefly as follows:

  • Why governments need money
  • Nationalisation vs privatisation of particular services
  • Guidelines for democratic financial management
  • Role of the legislature in financial management
  • Role of the executive authority in financial management
  • Role of the adiministrative authority in financial management
  • Government revenue: income tax
  • Government revenue: property tax
  • Government revenue: consumption tax
  • Government revenue: user charges, consumer tariffs and nominal levies
  • Government expenditure and the budget
  • The budget cycle
  • Provincial financial management
  • Inventory management
