Opening the Black Box of Cabinet-Level Politics
Explaining Disaggregated Public Social Expenditure Changes in Affluent, Parliamentary Democracies with Cabinet-Level Politics and Institutions
Reihe: Policy-Forschung und Vergleichende Regierungslehre
Bd. 23, 2019, 224 S., 39.90 EUR, 39.90 CHF, br., ISBN 978-3-643-91117-9
The book takes a look at social expenditure in affluent democracies in times of fiscal austerity. The study analyzes expenditure changes in nine social policy areas between 1980 - 2010, from an intra-cabinet perspective by considering the partisan affiliation of responsible spending ministers and effects of budgeting reforms.
Thus, the analysis contributes to the question of whether parties or institutions matter.
