Abstract

This solutions manual for Intermediate Public Economics (MIT Press, 2006) offers students an opportunity to practice using the analytical tools of public economics at intermediate and more advanced levels. The 424 exercises in the textbook (all of which are covered in the solutions manual) vary widely in nature and difficulty; some involve reflection on the models used and the discussion of assumptions and conclusions, while others work through general arguments in the text using specific functional forms. Several require the use of data to test theoretical predictions. The more challenging exercises explore and extend the material in the text. The Manual gives complete solutions to the analytical questions and provides guidance to the major points in the discussion problems, occasionally extending the discussion to related issues. In answers to the exercises analyzing data, the authors have kept the econometrics simple both in the estimation package employed and in the level of econometric sophistication. All regressions equations have been computed using Microsoft Excel. Advanced students can employ a wider range of test statistics and conduct appropriate integration tests on time series data. Professors and students will find this book an important resource for their work with the textbook.
