Recommending Books for Purchase (Bulletin 134 - Feb 2021) - 2020 Publications: Behavioral Economics
Behavioral Public Finance by M. Mustafa Erdogdu (Editor); Larissa-Margareta Batrancea (Editor); Savas Cevik (Editor)
Publication Date: 2018-07-07
Print Book Price : £120
Recent developments in economics have expanded the area toward analyzing the impact of behavioral motives, social context and political governance on economic outcomes and individual decisions. While social economics introduces topics like social capital, social norms, identities, cooperation, collective action, the analysis of individual benefit function to the field of economics, behavioral economics pushes the boundaries of rationality assumption by introducing cognitive biases to decision-making. Therefore, political and social contexts as well as individual behavior are important determinants not only of individuals' life-changing decisions but also of nations' economic performance. This book combines conventional approaches toward public finance with new developments in economics such as political governance, social and individual aspects of economic behavior. It tackles political, social and behavioral aspects of public finance and fiscal exchange. It examines taxation, government expenditures and public policymaking from the perspective of the political, social and behavioral contexts generating them. Namely, it scrutinizes the relationship between political institutions, governance types and public finance; it investigates the impact of social context, social capital and societal cooperation on public finance; it studies behavioral biases of individual fiscal preferences. The book is directed toward creating an interaction among scholars from different subfields of economics and other related social sciences. Thus, it will be of interest to scholars, policymakers, tax professionals, university students, and the general public, since the existing literature on the application of behavioral economics to public finance are quite scarce.

The emergence of new platform business models, notably the sharing economy, is impacting the economy in various ways, altering the structure of many industries, and raising a number of economic and political issues. This book investigates the widespread influence of the sharing economy on businesses and society, as well as examining its underpinning economic principles and development. This volume presents an exhaustive review of the existing knowledge on the sharing economy and addresses several major areas of concern for incumbent businesses.

It takes an in-depth look at controversial labour policies, such as using labour as self-employed contractors or using regulatory grey areas to expand in markets.

This contribution on the sharing economy will enable researchers and graduate and doctoral students to expand and improve their understanding of this topic and identify new research problems in all of these areas. The book will also appeal to policy makers, regional and local government decision makers, and those interested in labour markets transformation.
