Special Issue of RWER on Public Economics and Public Administration

Real-World Economics Review has released a special issue (84-June 2018) on “The Public Economy and a New Public Economics.”  Peter Boettke (George Mason University) has written a nice short overview of “the conversation” to which this contributes, and I would also recommend his recent SEA presidential address on the same topic. Here is the table of contents from the issue:
