Gouverner (par) les finances publiques

Gouverner (par) les finances publiques

Philippe Bezes, Alexandre Siné

Governing (via) Public Finance

KEYWORDS: POLICY - PUBLIC FINANCE - STATE – TAX POLICY - SOCIOLOGY OF PUBLIC FINANCES

Public finance is at the heart of both the functioning and debates of democratic societies, but they are rarely analyzed in terms of power, conflict between actors, negotiations, policy choices, constraints or resources for public action, and the relationship between governments and their citizens.

This work illuminates contemporary transformations of the State and of public action, marked by deficits, fiscal reform, fiscal spending ideologies, regulation, and the question of redistribution while examining several different areas, like defense, justice, healthcare, research, immigration, transportation, local government, diplomacy, and housing.

The authors: Phillippe Bezes is a Doctor of Political Science, Researcher at CNRS and an Instructor at Sciences Po. Alexandre Siné is Inspector of Finances, agrégé in economic and social science and doctor of political science.
