Public money is one of the primary currencies of influence for
politicians and public servants. It affects the standards by which
they undertake the nation's business and impacts the standard of
living of the nation's citizens. David A. Good's The Politics of
Public Money examines the extent to which the Canadian federal
budgetary process is shifting from one based on a bilateral
relationship between departmental spenders and central guardians to
one based on a more complex, multilateral relationship involving a
variety of players. This new edition offers an up-to-date account
of the Canadian system, including the creation of the Parliamentary
Budget Officer, the government's response to the global financial
crisis, Canada's Economic Action Plan, strategic and operating
reviews, the most recent attempts to reform the Estimates, and much
more. An insightful and incisive study of the changing budgetary
process, The Politics of Public Money examines the promises and
pitfalls of budgetary reform and sheds new light on the role
insiders play in influencing government spending.
