Strategic Public Finance takes a multidisciplinary approach to public finance. It considers the nature of public finance and its symbiotic relationship with economy and society. It considers its philosophical underpinnings, the nature of the services it finances, its relative scale, how it is raised and spent, its possible beneficial and adverse effects, its sustainability, the appropriate governmental level of decision making, the means by which it can be disbursed, and an optimal strategy for public finance.
