About the book
Public Economics - New Perspectives and Uncertainty intends to be a collection of papers written in the context of macroeconomic policy to address the problems of uncertainty, such as pandemics, inequality, and poverty. The book chapters will aim to discuss macroeconomic policy challenges during and after COVID-19. It can analyse how macroeconomic policies affect inequality, employment, education, gender, uncertainty, food security, the environment, and health. The book’s primary purpose will be to address public policy concerns, such as the impact of fiscal and monetary policies on socially optimal resource allocation and equitable income distribution. Therefore, the book will aim to address key difficulties confronting modern governments, particularly during pandemics, which are (1) taxation, (2) inequality, (3) social security and demographics, (4) stabilization policies like debt and interest rates, (5) health and the environment, and (6) demographic shift. The book is intended to be useful to both researchers and policymakers. That it gives policymakers hope public policies aimed at fiscal stability, economic growth, and poverty reduction can be successfully implemented during uncertainty. Furthermore, the book will aim to have the goal of being self-contained, so readers with no prior knowledge of public economics or dynamic macroeconomic theory should be able to follow along with the research.
