Se ofrece un panorama muy breve del estado actual de la teoría de los bienes públicos y de sus aplicaciones prácticas, esto es, de los estudios empíricos sobre la demanda y provisión de bienes públicos, así como de algunas de las limitaciones tanto teóricas como empíricas que han surgido en los últimos años. A continuación se presentan los artículos incluidos en la sección monográfica, realizando algunos comentarios sobre los mismos, puesto que a juicio del autor la selección realizada representa muy bien tanto el estado de la cuestión como el excelente nivel de la investigación actual en economía del sector publico en España. A brief survey of the state of the art in the theory of public goods is offered , as well as of the empirical applications on the demand and provision of public goods, reviewing some of the theoretical and empirical limitations which have arose in last years. The papers included in the monographic section of the Journal are presented, making some commentaries, as in the author’s opinion the selection made represents very well either the state of the art and the high level of the current Spanish research in Public Sector Economics.
