About this Textbook

Budgeting is probably the single most important function in government, considering the amount of money a government spends each year on various expenditure programs and activities, as well as the time it spends in preparing the budget, appropriating funds for these activities and, finally, executing them. This book integrates the complex theory and practice of public budgeting into a single text. Written in a simple, concise and easy to understand manner, The Fundamentals of Public Budgeting and Finance captures the multidimensional perspective of public budgeting that students, as well as practitioners will find useful.

Reviews

“Dr. Aman Khan has written a masterful budgeting book that allows even a novice to understand the economic, structural, and political aspects of the governmental budgetary process. Most importantly, he provides ample analytical tools—along with numerous examples—to help a student or practitioner make budget forecasts and prepare an operating or capital budget. This book will not only be a great benefit to students but also to those who prepare budgets for governments.” (Terry Patton, Robert Madera Distinguished Professor of Accounting, Midwestern State University, USA)
